Transforming Lives

When jobs are created people survive on their own as their self-esteem and outlook on life improve dramatically. The income generated from their new businesses allows once poor families to begin to fulfill basic needs transforming one life at a time as each person escapes the tragedies of poverty. 
 

Field Partner Testimonials


 
A mark of a truly impactful organization is the ability to influence multiple aspects of a community’s well-being with one action. iDE Ghana is aiming to do just that, with an unlikely tool: toilets!
 
The nonprofit works in the rural regions of northern Ghana to help improve financial access, nutrition, gender equality, resilience to climate change and sanitation. 
 
Kiva recently partnered with iDE Ghana to implement the SAMA SAMA toilet project, which  aims to distribute 61,560 toilets to 3 of the most marginalized regions of northern Ghana by 2020.
 
One way the program will increase scalable, affordable sanitation products in the area, such as pour-flush toilets, is by training local entrepreneurs to manufacture, design and sell these products themselves. The hope is that in doing so iDE Ghana will increase formal employment opportunities, foster entrepreneurship and have a positive impact on the communities’ health and environment.
