Ending the cycle of poverty
Wherever they’re growing up, extreme poverty is devastating for children's development. We work with families to break the cycle of poverty so that the most vulnerable children can reach their full potential. Our work addresses the underlying causes of child poverty: food insecurity, vulnerability to climatic events, and lack of access to markets and financial services.
Training and small loans, as well as tools and resources to build self-reliance are key to helping hard-working people leave poverty behind. With our unique community-based model, refined and expanded over our 70-year history, we’re able to offer the hand up that people need to get — and stay — on their feet.
