Challenge

According to the World Bank, 12.7 million Malawians are still living below $2 a day. Poverty is exacerbated by other challenges like inadequate access to electricity, low educational attainment, and unemployment. Although many development organizations are trying to tackle these problems, progress is slow.

Solution

Flame Tree Initiative empowers social entrepreneurs to address these issues by creating localized solutions. Through in-depth business training and social impact measurement, entrepreneurs build businesses that both create jobs - solving issues around unemployment - and tackle specific social or environmental challenges pervasive in their communities.

Long-Term Impact

This project will empower 30 social entrepreneurs to launch and scale businesses for good. By focusing on entrepreneurs, the impacts are multiplied. One entrepreneur can improve the lives of thousands of Malawians.
