Intercept Poverty Explores Micro-Franchising for Ethiopia

Key Team members from Intercept Poverty's Melbourne team head to East Africa late December for a month. This trip has two aims.

Aim one is to deliver the funds we have accumulated for specific projects, make purchases and deliver these to our partners in Addis.

Aim two is to develop existing partnerships on the ground in Addis Ababa Ethiopia and explore specific opportunities for Micro-Franchising.

"While we have existing relationships, we are receiving enquiries from people in Kenya who are interested in exploring ways to micro-franchise there as well".
Chantelle Zei, program co-ordinator for Intercept Poverty.

The projects to be explored seem to have good viability. Time will tell.
That's what makes this trip so exciting for Intercept Poverty.

It will use this trip to further it's time and resource into replicable systems to do with Water, Food, Wellbeing and Education and the current focus of East Africa.
