Two billion families around the world live in poverty. Surviving on less than US$3.20 a day, they struggle to afford even the most basic of items. With a small loan, you can give families a hand up out of poverty, helping them build their own businesses and earn the regular incomes they need to provide for their children.
Marginalised and vulnerable, families living in poor communities face immense challenges – life-threatening illness and child mortality to name just two. By strengthening communities through health education and improved water and sanitation, you can start a ripple of transformation.
Quality education is a powerful tool for helping children build a future free from poverty, yet many parents struggled to pay school fees or buy uniforms and textbooks for their children. Your support helps families send their children to school, helping them rewrite the future for generations to come.
Families who live on less than US$1.90 a day are trapped in a cycle of extreme poverty. They live in unsafe shelter, lack jobs and assets and often don’t even know where their next meal is coming from. Help give families in extreme poverty the tools they need to build a whole new future.
Nearly 1 in 2 women in India experience violence in their homes. As well as the physical and emotional pain, injuries can prevent them from working to earn the income they need to break the cycle of poverty. You can help end violence against women in India by training local women as ‘PeaceMakers’.
Many families living in poverty don’t have a bank account. Without one, they use informal and risky means to save, borrow and manage the little money they do have. Help deliver innovation to these families so they can make secure financial transactions and keep their hard-earned money safe.
