Economic Development


Poverty compounds mankind’s worst dilemmas. Eradicating it would result in an improved quality of life for all – ensuring access to nutritious food, clean water, quality medical care, education and more. It would boost our economies and revitalize our environmental resources. In other words, eradicating poverty would help individuals and communities thrive.  

  • The number of people living in extreme poverty is estimated to be above 750 million by the end of 2021. 
  • 1.7 billion adults around the world are living without formal credit or savings.  
  • Women globally earn 67% of what men are paid for the same work, a gap that is now expected to take more than 250 years to close. 

The good news is our charity partners listed below are focused on helping individuals and communities rise above poverty. Their programs include microfinance, transportation, agricultural education and more to ensure that people have sustainable ways to provide for themselves and their families.
