TIFIE Humanitarian Charity Profile
In 2005, Robert Workman began looking for humanitarian opportunities. After 30 years as a successful entrepreneur and owner of Provo Craft and Novelty Inc., he wanted a focus that would more profoundly change people’s lives around the world. This gave rise to TIFIE Humanitarian in 2007, whose full title and mission is Teaching Individuals and Families Independence through Enterprise.
During his extensive business experience, Workman had seen free-market concepts flourish in places like China and India, improving lives with fresh opportunity. His vision? Use tried-and-true business principles within a humanitarian model to provide sustainable change.
This vision took root in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where Workman fell in love with the people and their culture. He also recognized the massive challenges of daily life let alone opportunities for livelihoods. It was a challenge, making it the perfect place for Workman to plant the first seeds that would become TIFIE Humanitarian (Kinshasa, Congo).
