Restless Development is a small agency with big impact. The impact of my donation coupled with the quality of experiences I have had, have made this an overwhelming experience and I am proud to be a part of such a dynamic, efficient and innovative organization. It is true value for money.

10.3 c goes to supporting our programs globally. Just 1.4c is spent on fundraising, and 0.3c on governance.
Restless Development delivers incredible impact per dollar.
For example, it only costs Restless Development $15,000 to set up livelihoods groups in Tanzania for 90 young entrepreneurs to organize themselves, receive business management and enterprise training, to receive mentorship support from technical experts, to provide seed funding and follow-up support, and to link the group to financial institutions and markets.

That’s 90 young people who will be enabled to pull themselves and their extended families out of poverty, utilizing their own talents and the marketplace in their own community.
