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 11 more! We have 4 more lined up to start asap too to bring us to 20.
We added 2 businesses earlier this year and then in April we added 6 more. Then during June we added 3 more! We are so happy to be helping people to become self-sufficient, especially special needs families suffering from terrible vulnerabilities with their children.
We are now helping or have helped 20 local African families to start their own business.
