Founded in 1979, Trickle Up's mission is to help the lowest income people worldwide take the first steps up out of poverty by providing a Spark Grant as seed capital for their endeavors, business training, and relevant support services essential to the launch or expansion of a microenterprise.
Trickle Up believes in people and their capacity to make a difference. We empower the world's poorest people to develop their potential and strengthen their communities. We pursue this goal in a way that encourages innovation and leadership, maximizes resources and promotes communication and cooperation among all Trickle Up constituencies.
