IKEA & KickStart - Livelihood Creation In Rural Zambia

Commitment by

IKEA Foundation

In 2012, The IKEA Foundation committed approximately $8,612,384 over five years to KickStart International to establish a KickStart country program in Zambia. By enabling KickStart to expand their work in Zambia, IKEA Foundation's contributions will expand the impact of KickStart International's 2011 CGI commitment to lift "Half a Million People out of Poverty" between 2011 and 2014. Over the course of the five-year partnership, the IKEA Foundation and KickStart estimate that more than 47,000 of KickStart's MoneyMaker pumps will be used to create more than 10,400 highly profitable agri-businesses that will enable families to lift themselves out of poverty. This will translate into approximately 280,000 people lifted out of poverty by 2017.
