Upward Ventures is a nonprofit organization that kickstarts businesses with poor communities in order to create good jobs for people and empower them to lift themselves from poverty. Esperanza Soaps is our first enterprise, launched simultaneously is a slum called Las Malvinas in the Dominican Republic and in the United States.
We believe everyone was made in God's image and is inherently unique, precious and worthy of dignity. This is why we fight poverty. Poverty robs people of their basic dignity and the opportunity to thrive in life and reach their full potential. Everyone can get involved in eradicating poverty. The world needs generous, creative and loving people that help build businesses to employ the unemployable and provide opportunities for the least of our brothers and sisters.
