The "Global Gladiator" team hopes to help bring economic opportunity to impoverished areas to help others pursue their dreams. We want to provide individuals with the tools to grow personally and professionally and to help raise healthy and happy families. We hope to fund several entrepreneurs during 2016.
Our first entrepreneur, Simon Lumumba, is a skilled carpenter working near his home in Nairobi. Simon’s greatest dream is to see his five kids complete their educations. Unfortunately, his business remains small and he struggles to afford school fees for all of his children. With support from Celergo's "Global Gladiators" and Opportunity International, Simon hopes to grow his carpentry business so that he can educate his entire family. With the ability to purchase raw materials in bulk, Simon will be able to use his skills to produce more furniture than ever before.
With your help, we can help make Simon's dream come true! Please help us reach our goal of $244.
