About 
Integra is comprised of the Integra Foundation (a NGO) and the Integra Co-op (a social investment fund). Integra was formed in 1995 and has been involved in needs in East Africa for ten years and Eastern Europe for almost 20 years. We are motivated by God’s call to bring justice to the poor.  Through child sponsorship, Fair Trade businesses and enterprise development we provide opportunities for people to climb out of poverty. Integra began initially to develop a DR response capacity with the post-election violence in Kenya in early 2008.
