At Grow Movement we believe enhancing the skills of local entrepreneurs to lead their countries out of poverty is the best way to economically empower the people in the poorest countries on earth. We use remote volunteer consultants in over fifty countries to deliver business advice on an ultra low cost base to entrepreneurs in Uganda, Malawi and Rwanda over mobile phone. Our entrepreneurs use this advice to create employment and relieve poverty.
Why are we exciting?
As all of Grow Movement's advice is delivered remotely by volunteers and our operations are managed by local people, we've dramatically cut the cost of business advice to entrepreneurs in the least developed countries on earth. We've managed to work with over 200 entrepreneurs in the last three years on a cost base of less than $400 a week.
Right now we're scaling up to advise 1,200 Malawian, Ugandan and Rwandan entrepreneurs over the next three years to lead their communities out of poverty and show the effectiveness of talented local entrepreneurs teamed with remote volunteer consultants to end poverty at low cost and scale.
What can we offer Escapees?
Without the burden of heavy time or cost commitments, Grow Movement gives you the opportunity to apply your business skills to help make a sustainable difference to some of the poorest communities on earth. Grow volunteers are expected to contribute the cost of telephone calls (with an international calling card, these can be as low as 0.08 USD/minute) and twelve 2-3 hour consulting sessions over a 3- 5 month period at mutually agreed times. Additionally, each volunteer is required to have a minimum level of professional experience, for example a formal business qualification (e.g. MBA, Chartered Accountant).
