We partner with people through business and community development to break the cycle of poverty in Kenya.
Since 2003, The 1010 Project has worked with grassroots community organizations in Kenya. These partners run schools, orphanages, HIV/AIDS support groups, microfinance institutions, and women’s empowerment groups. We provide microgrants and microloans (through in-country lenders) to help kickstart or expand small businesses that support these community organizations. The 1010 Project connects resource with need in the context of friendship.
In the Denver area, The 1010 Project runs a series of public education and anti-poverty awareness programs, including Shop for a Cause, a poverty education curriculum, and presentations about our development model and outstanding partner organizations. Get involved with us, and make a statement that you value the dignity and hard work of social entrepreneurs in Kenya.
Below is a simplified diagram of our development model, which is based on The Global Entrepreneur Academy, a business skills and sustainability training program.
