Economic Development

You can help with a donation today

Economic development is about empowering individuals and communities with new knowledge and skills they can use to pull themselves out of poverty.

Generous donors like you have helped enable economic development projects around the world, such as:

  • Providing merchant carts to unemployed families to help generate income
  • Conducting vocational training such as sewing classes to help women become self-reliant
  • Supporting greenhouse projects to improve yield and promote sustainability

Empowering Social Mobility

Economic development is crucial to economic growth. Without it, poverty persists.

Over a billion people around the world live on less than $1 a day. More than 6 billion people live on less than $10 a day. While conflict, displacement, illness, and emergencies play a role in exacerbating poverty, lack of economic opportunities plays a bigger role in prolonging suffering. Without a way to earn, families cannot afford to eat, let alone pull themselves out of poverty.

Prioritizing economic development is a powerful protection against poverty. Your support can promote economic development projects that help families break the cycle of poverty.
