About The Adventure Project
The Adventure Project is a nonprofit “adding venture” capital to create jobs in developing countries.
Jobs transform everything. It’s what people want most.
Jobs multiply opportunity, hope, education, peace, and prosperity for everyone. When people have good jobs, they invest in their future. They open bank accounts, send their kids to school, and lead healthier lives.
Aid is always appreciated, but a job has the power to lift people out of poverty forever.
On average, every $1,200 raised trains one person to become a profitable entrepreneur — serving at least 500 people in their community with access to clean water, health care, nutritious food, and a safer environment.
The Adventure Project Mission
The Adventure Project is a charity focused on businesses.
When local economies thrive, children survive and families escape poverty faster. Increased incomes are also proven to reduce conflict.
They channel charity strategically towards jobs that lift people out of poverty while transforming local communities with life-saving services.
They use rigorous data to understand the most effective ways to move people out of poverty — for good.
The Adventure Project work with local organizations with remarkable track records.
Each is creating measurable impact, but needs additional funds to scale and train more people. They fill a critical need, called a “Pioneer Gap”. It’s a time when an organization is achieving transformative impact, but lacks the funds to scale and serve more people.
They “add venture” capital so they can deepen their impact and expand their work to new villages and countries.
Their on-the-ground partners recruit local people to become entrepreneurs. Those people learn how to sell products or services to their communities, earning commission from every sale.
