One of the core values of The Everett and Austin Project is to help our recipients to be self-sufficient. We have been adding businesses started over the course of our 2.5 years in existence.
We had been stuck on 5 businesses started for a while but this year we have added 8 more! And we have 3 more in mind to start very soon.
We added 2 businesses earlier this year and then just this month added 6 more! We are so happy to be helping people to become self-sufficient, especially special needs families.
We have now helped 13 local African families to start their own business, including the first 2 which I wrote about here.
