SABIENDO QUE LOS NEGOCIOS ROMPEN BARRERAS

La Fundación Shared Interest cambia vidas en el mundo en desarrollo al romper el ciclo de la pobreza a través de la creación de negocios resistentes.

Creemos que ayudar a alguien a construir un negocio sólido es una forma sostenible y respetuosa de luchar contra la pobreza. Es por allo que proporcionamos formación en gestión financiera y ayudamos a construir redes de apoyo en comunidades rurales desfavorecidas.

Hemos trabajado en varios países desde 2004, ayudando a las personas a crear una vida mejor para su familia y comunidad.

Our Three Themes

We believe that strong and well-managed businesses create employment opportunities and increase the income of their producers and workers, resulting in the improvement in their quality of life.

Working in partnership with local organisations, we implement projects that aim to:

  • Strengthen the resilience and sustainability of co-operatives, supporting thousands of farmers and artisans.
  • Increase the business and agricultural skills of producers and artisans to improve product quality, output and resilience to climate change.
  • Support the development of sustainable, income-generating enterprises to improve livelihoods, reduce poverty and empower women and young people.

To achieve our aims and ensure our work supports Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we established three pertinent themes to address through our projects. These are: 'Developing Sustainable Enterprises', 'Empowering Women and Youth' and 'Building Climate Resilience'. By anchoring our work around these three pillars, we can maximise the impact of our projects by equipping smallholder farmers and craftspeople with the vital skills and resources necessary to lift them out of poverty and build their resilience for the future.

A Record Breaking 2023

"It has been a year of achievement for Shared Interest Foundation, as we delivered a record number of projects across six countries."

~ Shared Interest Chair, Dr. Yvonne Gale, in an excerpt from our 2023 Annual Review. Read it here.


In 2023, over 800 women have received training through the Foundation in a range of topics including agro-processing, soilless farming, Climate Smart Agriculture, business skills and leadership. In Ivory Coast and Rwanda, we provided training, tools and farming inputs to help over 200 young farmers establish sustainable cocoa and coffee farms. Additionally, 143,269 trees were planted including coffee seedlings, agroforestry trees and fruit trees supporting 1,423 coffee farmers.

Partnership plays a huge part in all of our projects and it is only with the support of partners, colleagues, volunteers, donors, and grants from trusts and foundations that we are able to continue to support the talents of rural businesses. 

These achievements were recognised by the Charity Times Awards, where Shared Interest Foundation was named Charity of the Year with an income of less than £1 million. These prestigious awards celebrate outstanding efforts within the voluntary sector.
