About Us

BUILDING BUSINESSES FROM GRASS ROOTS UP

Shared Interest Foundation, based in Newcastle, supports fair trade businesses across Africa and Latin America. 

We work with local partners to deliver projects which provide support and training to farmers, producers and businesses.  We build business support networks, helping fair trade businesses break into new markets, increasing incomes and employment for producers.  We believe that socially responsible businesses are a route to building sustainable employment opportunities enabling producers and farmers to work their way out of poverty. 

Currently we are delivering projects in Burkina Faso, Swaziland, Malawi, Kenya and Uganda
