About This Charity

One Spark's vision is a world where no woman faces financial barriers to living a life free of violence. Our goal is to eliminate obstacles to financial sustainability for women facing violence. We believe that increasing opportunities for women to achieve financial security is a critical component of supporting the transition to a violence free life. Specifically, we : • Work with women to create a simple business plan that outlines how they can generate self-employment income. • Facilitate the process of registering a woman’s business, including covering the cost of registration. • Provide women with a laptop/the basic software required to engage in business-related activities. • Provide women with information related to government compliance. • Provide training on tracking business income and expenses. • Provide up to $2,000 in start-up cost subsidies per woman, which can be accessed for up to 2 years after her business is registered. • Provide ongoing mentorship.
