Social Enterprise



Help unlock new opportunities for people facing poverty through entrepreneurship and enterprise. This gift helps Christian partners to provide training, seed funding and opportunities for entrepreneurs in developing countries to build viable businesses with positive social impact.

How your gift helps

Tearfund is proud to be supporting Christian partners as they explore new ways to unlock opportunities for people facing poverty, like entrepreneurship and employment. This gift helps Tearfund's partners learn, build and grow sustainable social enterprises that will both be commercially viable and alleviate poverty.

In Pokhara, Nepal, members of a women’s Self-Help Group spot their products on the shelves of their local store. Tearfund partner International Nepal Fellowship (INF) commenced a multipurpose company that includes Ark Bazaar, which has a vision for ‘quality products and services for the fullness of life.’ The store creates opportunities for women’s employment and a market for local products from people with disabilities, Self-Help Groups and farmers groups, and profits are fed back into INF’s work in the community.
