To reduce global poverty through economic self-empowerment.
We believe in the inherent value of every global citizen and that each individual has the potential and power to change their world for the better, given the opportunity. That’s why we focus on economic self-empowerment.
The Need and The Opportunity
The good news is that there are hundreds of millions of fewer people living in absolute poverty than there were only 20 years ago. The bad news is there are still nearly 1 billion people living on less than $1.25 a day.
And about another 1 billion people live on less than $2 per day … mostly in these same countries.
The fact is that hundreds of millions of people don’t earn enough income to meet their basic needs, let alone their aspirations. Economic self-empowerment provides the opportunity for increased economic stability, better healthcare and housing, the opportunity for education, and ultimately, the real possibility of self-sufficiency.
