The Stay foundation supported by TSF accompanies social entrepreneurs in Africa, connects their resources and supports their exchange within the “Stay Alliance” network. The local entrepreneurs involved generate their own funds to become financially independent and permanently self-sustaining. In a region with one of the weakest economies in the world – and a rapidly growing population – promoting local entrepreneurship is a key element in combating the causes of migration and facilitating the development of local resources. The aim of this development aid is to ultimately make this form of assistance superfluous.
