Economic Development Fund

More than 685 million people worldwide survive on less than $2.15 a day, which is increasing each year. Support multiple charities in one pledge working on economic development.
Through the economic development fund, you will join others in a mission to reduce and end poverty. Eradicating poverty would raise incomes, reduce health risks, increase food security and pave the way for better educational and vocational opportunities.

Your donations will contribute toward sustainable opportunities for those living in poverty, including access to continued education, life-skills training and business opportunities that lead to strengthened self-reliance.
