Income Generation

Donate

Our international work is divided into six themes: Anti-Trafficking, Clean Water, Emergency Response, Food Security, Gender Justice and Income Generation.

We work alongside communities to support projects in each of these areas. We are also responsible for overseeing the transfer of funds for the UK’s Mission Support Allocation (money donated through the annual Self-Denial Appeal).

We support a number of Income Generation projects such as micro-credit in China, self-help groups in Kenya, and village savings and loans groups in Tanzania to help communities to use their skills and locally-available resources to lift themselves out of poverty.

Salvation Army self-help group Kenya
I thank God because we have gone somewhere. We pay rent without difficulty. We can get food for our children. If we didn’t join this group, I think things would have been even tougher for us.

Savings and Loans Groups, Kenya

In the urban slums of Nairobi, Kenya, every day is a struggle for survival. But individuals are joining together to form community self-help groups to overcome poverty. As part of the group, members regularly contribute small amounts of money to build up a communal fund. They can then each take loans from this shared pot to start or expand their business, or pay for unexpected costs. More than 60 groups are running in Nairobi, reaching 1,200 members and their families.

The Salvation Army is training individuals in business management, accounting, marketing, healthcare and anti-human trafficking helps to improve opportunities, grow confidence, generate income and strengthen resilience within the whole community.
