Five Talents USA

Five Talents USA Five Talents empowers the poor through community savings and small business development.
Commended by resolution at the 1998 Lambeth Conference, Five Talents was created as a long-term response to the ravages of poverty that debilitate communities in developing countries. The founders, including Anglican Church leaders, talked about the plight of the poor and those dying of famine, AIDS/HIV and other diseases. They wanted not only to assist but also to guard the dignity of the poor, many of whom survive on $1 a day, by supporting them in small businesses. Today, Five Talents is headquartered in Vienna, Virginia, outside Washington, D.C. We have offices in London and Kampala, Uganda, as well as an office in the southeast US that coordinates our Latin American program and curriculum development. We are supported by hundreds of volunteers across the US and the UK.

Empowering the poor by promoting innovative savings, microcredit, and microenterprise programs, business training and spiritual development.

Mission: Five Talents transforms lives through economic empowerment. Our vision is to eradicate extreme poverty by restoring human dignity and creating strong, sustainable communities. We do this through strong local partnerships, literacy and business skills training, community savings, and business development.

Five Talents savings groups feel a sense of ownership. They appoint their own leaders and assign roles - often a treasurer, secretary and chairperson. During group meetings, savings are counted and recorded publicly. We are excited for groups like this one to be able to meet again.
