Street Business School trains women to launch micro-businesses, gain confidence and leave poverty behind. We’ve been at it for over a decade—and we’ve seen the transformational benefits of entrepreneurship firsthand.
With new levels of education and income, SBS graduates contribute to their local economies and create a brighter future for their families. They show their neighbors change is possible and raise capable, confident children who will break the cycle of generational poverty.
Our monitoring and evaluation data continues to exceed expectations, and we know these are more than numbers: Every improved metric represents thousands of women who have unlocked their true potential and discovered the entrepreneur within.
Our global expansion plan uses social franchising, an emerging model that helps social enterprises scale their missions. Through our Immersion Workshops, we teach nonprofit leaders to deliver Street Business School’s global entrepreneurship training in their communities. By adding income generation to their toolkits, these change-makers can help the people they serve unlock the transformational benefits of entrepreneurship and change their lives for the better.
Street Business School is on a mission to lift 1 million women out of poverty through entrepreneurship. Our quarterly impact reports share our progress in the form of global entrepreneurship training updates, philanthropic progress, milestones, challenges and projections.
We know that every story counts—and we’re striving to better understand the impact we create and constantly improve our programs. We take pride in our accomplishments, but we know this is only the beginning. Let’s ignite the potential in 1 million women and watch the positive impact spread like wildfire!
