Right Sharing of World Resources provides seed grants to small grassroots organizations to implement women-led, income-generating projects.
We fund grants to groups in Sierra Leone, Kenya, and south India (Tamil Nadu and the districts of Chittoor, Cuddapah, Anantapur, and Nellore in Andhra Pradesh). Organizations must be less than 20 years old and have an annual budget of less that $16,500. We invite organizations that fit these criteria to prepare and send grant proposals.

Eppiness Uside is the Chairwoman of the Makomo Friends Youth Group, a group of young adult Friends that received an RSWR grant in Spring 2016. Eppiness used her initial $50 loan to buy chickens so she could sell their eggs. The business did so well, she was able to pay back her first loan quickly, and then she received a second loan of $100 to expand her chicken business. After that was repaid, she received a $200 loan to open a food kiosk! She now runs both of the businesses and they continue to grow, and is proud of her hard work and successes.
