  Broadcast in Business

Call in to speak with the host

Halving poverty in Africa is one of the key millenium goals, but few African countries will meet their goals by 2015.  World Hope International, a non-profit Christian development organization, decided to take an innovative and strategic approach by establishing an exporting zone in Sierra Leone.

Richard Schroeder, CEO of First Step which is a for-profit subsidiary of World Hope, joins us to share how the venture benefits the country, development efforts, private sector, and even the poorest communities in Sierra Leone while making a profit.
