• Invest in Self-help efforts rather than to programs.  All donations here go entirely to the residents for the efforts they are leading. You can designate if you want your donation to go to projects in a particular African country, or to a specific type of project such as solar or water, etc.  Look at the projects listed on this Mutuality Platform and invest directly to an individual venture or a broader collective project.  New projects and countries will continue to be added.

About The Project

Entrepreneurship is how 80% of the families survive. Most are micro-ventures selling water, coal, food, etc.  Almost all are in debt and have to buy on credit decreasing their take home pay. 
A small capital infusion allows the family to forgo credit and buy wholesale, decreasing their expenses by up to 20%. They then lower their prices, attracting more customers thus increasing their profit.  Below is the result of just a $100 investment to 100 micro-ventures.



Paying it Forward

To date over 1,000 other families have  received assistance from participating families. Mutuality is actually alive and well in Africa.  Anyone donating will get monthly updates of any changes and additional donations by others.  Watch the impact that your investments catalyze.
