The Right Sharing of World Resources (RSWR) is seeking applications to provide seed grants to small grassroots organizations to implement women-led, income-generating projects.
- Provide grants for women in the developing world to begin small income-generating businesses so that they may help themselves and their families out of poverty.
- Help Quakers in the United States learn about the negative effects of poverty in the developing world and the negative effects of materialism in North America.
- In Sierra Leone, all groups must be self-directed by the women beneficiaries themselves. The leadership and management must come from within the group. The group cannot be formed or managed by outside coordinators.
- Additionally, the group must be registered with the local authorities and have a bank account, and the signers on the bank account must be three women who are members of the group. Groups should be less than 20 years old and have an annual budget of less than $4,000.
