Right Sharing of World Resources (RSWR) is an independent Quaker not-for-profit organization sharing the abundance of God's love by working for equity through partnerships around the world.

RSWR gives grants to groups of marginalized women in Kenya, Sierra Leone, and India to fund individual micro-enterprise projects. Right Sharing's work is grounded in a sense of stewardship for the world's material, human, and spiritual resources.

Right Sharing of World Resources provides seed grants to small grassroots organizations to implement women-led, income-generating projects.

We fund grants to groups in Sierra Leone, and parts of Kenya, and south India. Organizations must be small, with little or no access to other funds. Additionally, they should be under 20 years old.

RSWR is a Quaker organization supported primarily by the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the United States.
RSWR has two main goals: 1) Provide grants for women in the developing world to begin small income-generating businesses so that they may help themselves and their families out of poverty. 2) Help Quakers in the United States learn about the negative effects of poverty in the developing world and the negative effects of materialism in North America

What types of projects does RSWR support?
RSWR supports income-generating, self-employment projects for poor women who are members of a self help group. The project must include a revolving loan component. We believe that small scale income-generating projects offer a means of establishing self sufficiency to very poor people. By requiring that the project include a revolving loan program, we can multiple the impact of our grant as the funds are revolved many times to many different women within the community.

Why do we call our grant recipients “Project Partners”?
Burdens of materialism and poverty affect all peoples, in the developing and developed world. The projects RSWR supports in the developing world build awareness and capacity in the beneficiaries as well as assisting them by providing employment alternatives so that they can move out of poverty. Likewise, RSWR strives to provide awareness building and alternatives for lifestyle changes for Quakers in the United States as we seek God’s leading in our lives. RSWR believes that we have much to learn from one another as we work together in partnership.


RSWR focuses its funding in the following geographic areas:

-India in Tamil Nadu and the districts of Chittoor, Cuddapah, Anantapur, and Nellore in Andhra Pradesh

-Kenya in the districts of: 1. Siaya County, 2. Kisumu County, 3. Homa Bay County, 4. Migori County. 5. Kisii County. 6. Nyamira County, 7. Vihiga County, 8. Kakamega County, 9. Bungoma County, 10. Busia County, 11. Nandi County, 12. Trans Nzoi County, 13. Uasin-Gishu County.
