Breaking the poverty cycle with economic empowerment.


Skills training and education
Access to skills training, business coaching and education helps break the cycle of poverty. Together, we're strengthening families' capacity to provide for their children. 

Savings and loans programmes
Community member saving groups support families to save money regularly and enable communities to plan and invest in their future. Members can take turns borrowing money to start or grow a business.

Increasing agricultural productivity
We train farmers in climate-smart agriculture practices so they can grow more significant and varied crops. This helps increase the quantity and quality of produce, both for their family and for sale.

Family gardens are vital to survival in the Pacific – not only do they feed communities, but they're also an essential part of local economies. But the changing climate has put them under threat.

Thanks to your support, we are helping communities to develop other ways of making money, saving up for the future and assisting families in navigating their changing environment.

A third of the world's poorest people live in South Asia, where the gulf between the rich and poor is growing ever wider, and the population of the urban poor is rising.

We work with communities to make sure children have access to food, shelter, clothing, healthcare and schooling by helping their families earn money, through skills training and micro-finance.

Many of the poorest people in Africa are rural farmers, growing only enough food to feed their families, and selling just enough to get by.

Your support is helping parents provide for their children, save and manage money for schooling and healthcare. Thanks to you, families can find other types of jobs, making it easier to have additional sources of income.
