Grow Movement uses the business consultancy skills of its global volunteer team to transform the lives of people in Uganda, Rwanda and Malawi. Its volunteer consultants empower African micro entrepreneurs by sharing their business skills over Skype, phone and email. This knowledge injection enables them to run their businesses more effectively, increasing their profitability and creating jobs in their communities. Since its founding in 2009, Grow Movement has completed projects with 265 entrepreneurs, helping them to create 550 jobs and improve the lives of 17,560 employees and their families at a cost of £265 per entrepreneur.
Richard Mosse is a longstanding volunteer for Grow Movement as he travelled to Uganda shortly after the charity started to photograph their pilot projects, enabling Grow Movement to build its website. After photographing Grow's work in Kampala in January 2010, Mosse travelled into eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, beginning his long term project in the region. Grow Movement's founder, Chris Coghlan, was Richard's flatmate while they were undergraduate students together at King's College London.
