One project at a time.

The Guyana Economic Development Trust

The Guyana Economic Development Trust, an independent philanthropic organization, incubates and supports projects that develop the workforce and boost the private sector of Guyana. Today, Guyana is on the verge of an economic revolution that will forever change the country.  The Guyana Economic Development Trust offers its supporters U.S. tax deductibility on contributions, the ability to help equip Guyanese with the skills of the future, and the opportunity to play a role in the progression of the nation.

The Opportunity

Guyana possesses significant natural and human resources. However, debt and risk capital for inventors and innovators in Guyana are scarce, resulting in relatively low levels of scientific entrepreneurial activity relative to elsewhere in Latin America and the Caribbean.  Innovation—a catalyst for entrepreneurship and job creation—is taking place at Guyana. It is happening at the country’s tertiary institutions.  GEDT invites you to join us in realizing the many opportunities.
