About Us

Spark MicroGrants is pioneering a new method of community development.

Spark supports rural poor communities to design, implement and manage their own social impact projects. We provide microgrants of between $2,000-$10,000 to enable project implementation, such as of a school, electricity line or farm. No interest or repayment of the funds granted is requested.

To date Spark has partnered with over 30 communities in Rwanda and Uganda who have developed local project plans and are in the process of implementing them.
