ABOUT VILLAGE ENTERPRISE
Village Enterprise’s mission is to end extreme poverty through innovation and entrepreneurship. Village Enterprise has impacted the lives of over one million people living in extreme poverty in East Africa. Village Enterprise’s new strategy focuses on ‘scale and impact’, and the organization has ambitious goals in both areas. Village Enterprise intends to impact the lives of 20 million people living in extreme poverty by 2030. Over the next three years, we plan to quadruple the number of people we serve (from 25,000/year to 105,000/year) and expand into new countries. To support this growth, Village Enterprise plans to significantly increase its individual fundraising efforts as a means of achieving ambitious revenue goals.
