THIS IS WHY WE EXIST

Social enterprising is a powerful development institution. Social enterprises offer products, services, employment and supplier opportunities requested for, they reach the under-served communities, and they generate tax income to the government. Despite this, it is often very difficult to start and run social enterprises in Sub-Saharan African countries due to the absence of fair funding opportunities and logistical hurdles. Also, social enterprising experiences unfair competition from the Aid Industry, which offers products and services for free, without empowering local structures, understanding the desires of the local communities, creating employment, strengthening local suppliers or generating tax income.

Action10 empowers social entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan African countries. We offer business loans, and through Human Rights & Science, training, networking, expert advice and physical infrastructure. We also challenge the Aid Industry mindset through cross-cultural awareness-raising and respect.
