  1. Project #1: Foxglove (formerly Focus Cambodia)

    Foxglove works to establish self-sustaining local initiatives in partnership with Indigenous organisations in developing countries. The Grassroots Rwanda program focuses on gathering women living in extreme poverty in rural southern Rwanda into small self-help groups of 20 to foster encouragement, friendship, training and micro-savings, enabling them to establish small business initiatives for themselves and their families.
