Economic Development

Poverty compounds mankind’s worst dilemmas.

Eradicating it would mean an end to much of the world’s hunger, childhood mortality, violence, social injustice and ecological destruction. 

Globally, 768.5 million people live in extreme poverty with less than $1.90 a day. Economic development at the individual, community and country levels is critical to driving true and lasting change.

Learn more and help economic development by supporting Global Impact charities through your employee giving campaign.
