Green Shoots Foundation

Join us to fight poverty in 500,000 households

Registered Charity Number: 1138412

Green Shoots Foundation (“Green Shoots”) is a charity based in the United Kingdom and registered with the UK Charity Commission (number 1138412). Green Shoots is developing a network of start-up (“greenfield”) microfinance institutions in Asia and Africa and a poverty relief impact assessment center. This is in response to i) the growing poverty and lack of financial services in parts of Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, and ii) the lack of social impact metrics and poverty alleviation targets in the microfinance industry. Our first greenfields are launched in the slums of Mumbai, India and in the Western and Central rural provinces of Zambia, Sub-Saharan Africa. By setting up greenfields, Green Shoots stresses its difference from mainstream microfinance charities and brings access to financial services where it is most needed. We focus on what matters and where it matters and NOT on building expensive operations. To demonstrate our difference, we offer to donors the option that 100% of their donation is restricted to the charitable purpose and none of it allocated to the charity’s overheads. By supporting Green Shoots, you are helping to make a difference.
