Sister Org Street Business School


We took the best parts of BeadforLife’s beads-to-business training and created Street Business School, a nonprofit on a mission to end extreme poverty through small business ownership. Our mobile classrooms meet women in their own communities and give them the skills and confidence they need to build sustainable businesses.

We believe every story counts and that every Street Business School member wants to take charge of her own future and create a better life for her family. They’re not interested in handouts, and neither are we. We use proven methods to give them the tools they need to succeed, and in only six months, they take those tools and run with them. As fearless businesswomen, they build up their enterprises, meet their daily needs, and raise capable and confident children who will break the cycle of generational poverty.

Now, we’re taking our Street Business School poverty eradication program to the world! We teach organizations how to deliver our programming to the people they serve—on the way to changing 1 million lives in 10 years.

  • “Our goal is to ignite 1 million women out of poverty by 2027”
