Financial inclusion

Spark’s has worked for a decade to build the economic and civic power of families facing rural poverty across East and West Africa. Spark's community-driven model combines weekly village planning meetings and a seed grant to accelerate rural progress, and establish the foundations for village success. The number of families who eat more than one meal per day doubles to 89%, household assets grow by 80% in the first year, and 85% of communities continue to meet and take action thereafter. After directly reaching 325 villages across Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Ghana and Liberia, Spark is now partnering with governments and NGOs to reach 12,000+ villages in the next decade and replicate the model globally.
