At Grow Movement we believe in the economic empowerment of the people in the least developed countries on earth. We use remote volunteer consultants on an ultra-low cost base to help micro entrepreneurs in Uganda, Rwanda and Malawi realise their dreams, relieve poverty and create employment. Our volunteers help improve the world one small action at a time and see the results for themselves.

Take Chikondi Mthethe a Grow Movement entrepreneur in Malawi. She increased occupancy in her 3 room guest house from 1-2 rooms 1 night a week to 3 rooms 5 nights a week thanks to advice from her Grow consultant Henry Abraham from London Business School to offer taxi drivers commission for bringing guests. She's using her greatly increased profits to build a second, larger guest house and hopes to increase her team from 6 to 16 employees when it opens in December. You can see Chikondi talking about our work with Henry here:

Grow Movement is working with the British government (UK AID) to provide free advice to 1,200 entrepreneurs like Chikondi over the next three years with the potential to raise the living standards of up to 38,000 people. If you would like to volunteer you need to donate twelve 2-3 hour consulting sessions over a 3- 5 month period at mutually agreed times over the phone.
