In 2018, Grace Impact joined the “Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs” network. The initiative was founded by Oxfam for small and middle-sized enterprises and helps women and men in poor countries establish their own business.
Oxfam International is a confederation of 13 like-minded organizations working together and with partners and allies around the world to bring about lasting change. It works directly with communities and seeks to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives with having a say in decisions that affect them. The principal belief is that people should have a respect for human rights and that will help alleviate poverty.
By investing in small local businesses, the owners have a chance to escape poverty and live a dignified, independent life. They can support their family, send their children to school, pay for medicine and medical care. Grace Impact supports this initiative as a member of Oxfam’s “Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs” program in Germany.
