We need your help to expand our services
We seek donations for our the start up phase of new programs. For example, now we are working to provide entrepreneurial training to Central American refugees in Mexico. We seek contributions to assist our partner microfinance institution to be able to develop the infrastructure necessary to lend to more immigrants.
IDEAS needs donations to train and support people in developing countries to provide assistance to their own people. We often start with people who live in rural areas and train them rather than bring highly educated persons from the capital city. We find that by training people who have a high school degree that they have more commitment to stay living in rural areas as they develop their skill levels with IDEAS.
In order to develop the skills of young professionals and expand our services to new areas, we ask people who care about sustainable development to donate to IDEAS. Helping young people, especially women, acquire the skills and experience they need in order to become recognized experts in the field helps ensures that microfinance and microenterprise institutions will be responsive to the needs of their most important clients – poor women in developing countries.
IDEAS is partially self-sustaining. It does not depend upon donations and grants alone as it sells its services of training and consulting. But in order to continually train new consultants, we require subsidy until they gain sufficient experience to function more fully.
