What can you do with £125k? Work with 260 entrepreneurs, create 550 new jobs, and improve the lives of 17,500 people

What can you do with £125K, pay for an MBA in London, including living costs for 2 years, a big house deposit, or numerous holidays! At Grow Movement we have done something amazing...we have transformed the business performanc of hundreds of micro entrepreneurs in Uganda, Rwanda and Malawi.

£125K is the full operating costs of Grow Movement since we started at the end of 2009, and has enabled us to work with 260 entrepreneurs through our programme, create 550 new jobs and improve the lives of 17,500 people. Incredible numbers for such a small budget. 

We are able to do this through the hard work and dedication  of our talented local team in Uganda, Joshua and Grace, Sophie and Willie in Malawi, and Eric in Rwanda. Our global team of volunteers who enable us to do this at such low cost  by providing their time, energy and business skills pro bono over Skype and phone.  Big thank you to the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM), London Business School, Cass Business School, Imperial Business School, Westminster Business School, and the Management Consultancy Association who work with us to raise awareness of our volunteering opportunity with the member,s students and alumni.
