All our conservation work, including this project, is born of our love for Africa and our need to protect it. Become a part of preserving Africa’s legacy for future generations.

At the same time that the Grumeti Fund’s law enforcement operations work to eliminate wildlife poaching, alternative options for income generation need to be developed to help households that rely on poaching make ends meet.  The Grumeti Fund has partnered with Raizcorp – a business incubator that has a proven track-record of success in business development. The enterprise development program consists of two key components: Guiding and Village Learning.

Key Successes:

Entrepreneurs trained through Village Learning in 2017 (50% women)


Entrepreneurs enrolled in the high-touch Guiding sessions in 2017

How it works:
  • Guiding is a high-touch entrepreneurial development approach, providing intensive one-on-one business support to entrepreneurs to help them enhance business development skills.
  • Village Learning consists of weekly sessions for budding entrepreneurs on business skills and personal development.
