While the goal and the challenge remain to move out of informality, the path is depicted not in terms of a one-dimensional remedy but rather as a gradual approach that can catalyse transition through comprehensive and integrated strategies.

We invest in supporting informal projects…

… as they play a significant role in communities, especially in income generation. The relative ease of entry and low requirements for education, skills, technology, and capital make such projects readily accessible to a broad public. Unfortunately, we noticed that most people enter the informal economy not by choice, but out of a need to survive and access basic income-generating activities. Most also struggle to formalise their business ideas in line with Western expectation.

Research has shown that workers in the informal economy face higher risks of poverty than those in the formal economy. As a result, there is a significant overlap between working informally and being poor and vulnerable. While some activities offer reasonable livelihoods and incomes, most people engaged in the informal economy are exposed to inadequate and unsafe working conditions and have high illiteracy levels, low skill levels and insufficient training opportunities.

The way forward is to provide a coherent framework for our partner projects which enables greater inclusion with the mainstream economy. The process of moving out of informality is a comprehensive and progressive one rather than a simplistic one-off approach.
