Description

What we do:

Think about the first time someone recognized in you a spark, a talent you hadn’t yet seen in yourself. Remember the way your heart soared when you felt the power of what you could do and be. At Street Business School (SBS) we are honored to help women living in poverty experience that feeling by turning their spark into a fire of purpose through our entrepreneurial training program. We provide entrepreneurial training programs for women living in extreme poverty through our Street Business

School, which is currently expanding globally with a goal of reaching a million women by 2027.

We are proud of our successes! With our help:

  • SBS graduates go from living on $1.35 a day, on average, to $4.19 a day two years later
  • 89% of women who start business during Street Business School are still successfully running that business two years after they graduate
  • We have reached over 52,000 people in Uganda since we started in 2004


Why you’ll feel good about working for Street Business School

  • You’ll be challenged, you’ll be inspired, and you’ll be proud to see your spark igniting change around the world
  • You’ll have plenty of opportunity to do cool and meaningful work
  • By supporting the global expansion of our Street Business School your work will directly enable one million women to lift their families out of poverty
  • You’ll be surrounded and inspired by other employees with passion, commitment, and drive. We love to help people reach their full potential. We expect everyone to contribute to the organization and grow their skills, and we are committed to supporting staff members at every step along the way
  • We support women to solve their own problems creating dignity, ownership and self-sufficiency
  • Increasing women’s income not only reduces poverty it also spurs investment in children, creates greater self-esteem, increases bargaining power, and reduces domestic violence
  • You’ll have great time off benefits, including a paid, organization-wide closure over the holidays
