TinyRivers is a project aimed at supporting private business initiatives by providing people with funds and counseling. We have expertise in starting small businesses and in sustainable development which allows us to assess the ideas and concepts, to help in making a long-term plan and to support the first steps of the business creation.
All supported initiatives are expected to be sustainable and to have a positive impact not only on the person themselves, but on a whole community. We believe, in fact, that supporting a private business can sometimes make a more long-lasting and thus bigger impact on a place than simple aid.
We and our contact network interact with many people from underprivileged communities in many different countries and this allows us to see people who have a business idea and the necessary skills to develop it, but lack own means and do not find any support from the government.
We know each beneficiary of our project personally and regularly follow up on them to ensure a long-lasting improvement. To get funding from our project, each candidate is expected to lay out a concept and take it through an extensive analysis, together with us, to prove its solidity. After the concept is approved for funding, the fundraising is initiated and the journey starts.
Maximum transparency and chances for our donors to become directly involved in the projects are also priorities for us.
Our main countries of activity are at the moment Ukraine and Uganda. Our efforts are organised in cooperation with the German organisations “Ukraine-Hilfe Berlin e.V.” and “Abaana Uganda e.V.”. You can learn more about their work on their websites.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
