About Trade Right International
Trade Right International is a wholly owned subsidiary of the UK charity missionNOW (SC040846). TRI is a new style of operation, which combines the best of commercial enterprise and charitable assistance, to enable sustainable support via a social business model to be established in rural communities in developing nations. TRI has embarked upon a “Social business” model which has been defined as a business which is designed to meet social goals. The social business must recover its costs and generate sufficient profit to enable it to reinvest in the business as well as achieving its social objectives. In this way the social goals are achieved by a self-sustaining business within the community it also serves.
By this method of Social Business, it is planned that the needs of the communities in which TRI operates can be satisfied by the work provided by the business in the community itself. This will negate the requirement for annual fundraising in order to sustain health, educational, or social projects.
TRI has an objective to bring social and community development to some of the world’s poorest nations. TRI will achieve this by engaging with and initiating sustainable business opportunities through capacity building, resourcing and empowering people of those nations.
