$1,000 provides seed-funding for a sustaining enterprise at a READ Center.
Sustaining enterprises are for-profit businesses that range from tractor rentals and sewing centers, to dairy cooperatives and radio stations. Each enterprise provides local jobs while generating income for the READ Center to sustain its operating costs in the long run.
When you launch a fundraiser to establish a sustaining enterprise, we will assign you to an upcoming project where it is most needed. Once the enterprise is established, we will keep you up to date on how it is making a difference in the lives of rural villagers.
*If you're interested in fully funding a sustaining enterprise, you can start a fundraiser for $10,000 and we will connect you to an upcoming project in a village where it is needed the most.
