Circuit International exists to
help communities solve their
own problems.

We do this by connecting social entrepreneurs in the developing world to resources, technology and business know-how from some of the world’s experts with support and expertise from fellow Kiwis and others around the world.

Our ultimate belief
is that local leaders with local solutions to local problems will end poverty.

Local Partners

We work through expert local partners, who are experts and know what their communities need to thrive.

Maximising Impact

Only 4% of the donations we receive go towards our admin costs, so more of your donations can go directly towards our life-changing projects.


We support the work of local communities to build social enterprises that help their communities.

GRAIN SAVER Bags Against Debt Slavery

Using a new technology called grain saver bags, we have been helping farmers store their crops for five months or longer. Because of this, farmers now control the market prices and can gain, at least, a 200% return.
