Small Business Fund Micro-Grants
Our $150 Small Business Fund grants help families in Sub-Saharan Africa (see focus areas below) to start a new business or expand their small enterprise, giving them the means to improve their lives.
Local volunteer coordinators train grant recipients in business skills, including record keeping and marketing. The Coordinators then continue to mentor the groups for one full year.
Spirit in Action works with people and in areas that are often ignored by micro-finance institutions.
Sharing the Gift

Sharing the Gift takes many different forms:
Our Community Grants help grassroots organizations and community groups improve their areas through local self- help projects.
These groups are rooted in the community and use local knowledge to enrich the lives of all community members.
