Strengthening Villages

Spark enables villages to design and launch local impact projects through our unique village-strengthening approach, which combines capacity building with a microgrant.

Since 2010, Spark has partnered with over 150 villages across Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Ghana, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We have developed a village-strengthening process that enables rural villages facing poverty to design and launch local impact projects of their choice from farms to feed their families to schools to send their children to. Spark’s approach sharply contrasts externally-driven efforts prescribing high cost solutions to the poor that fall apart shortly after the organization leaves. The Spark process consists of weekly village capacity building meetings over the course of six months where on average 64 families meet, set village goals, elect a leadership team and design a project proposal. Upon completion, Spark awards a one-time village grant of $8,000 to turn the project plan into action.
