Venture 2 began in 2006 with a desire to help communities in Uganda break the cycle of poverty. We promote transformational development within international communities while helping Canadian volunteers better understand world poverty. Our mission is to transform individuals, families, and communities out of poverty and into lasting well-being.
This can take the form of helping moms support one another socially and economically by organizing them into a handicraft cooperative or providing access to capital for entrepreneurs through micro-credit. Programs such as these enable families to afford school fees and other necessities for their children. But Venture 2 understands that poverty is complex and is addressing the core issues of isolation, vulnerability, powerlessness, and spiritual poverty.
We desire to create an environment where everyone grows, and where transformation can occur among all our partners and volunteers regardless of origin or wealth.
