TOPwerx to Help the Poor Learn How to Earn an Income Even if They Can't Find a Job
Many of the people we serve are capable and willing to work, but for a variety of reasons, can't find a job that pays a living wage. In an effort to improve their lot, we spent nearly a decade searching for some way they could earn an income from their own businesses. We finally found it. We call it TOPwerx.
Through TOPwerx we will train the poor how to buy and sell through online and offline marketplaces such as eBay, Amazon, auctions and flea markets. We have tested this, and we know it works. To find out more about it, check out this YouTube Video.
In May, we will launch a crowdfunding campaign through StartSomeGood.com. The campaign page isn't finished yet, but we'll put a link up as soon as it's ready.
