Clean hands save lives

The COVID-19 pandemic has elevated the urgency of hand washing. Since most entrepreneurs and farmers are connected to the food supply for thousands of communities, getting ill with COVID-19 would not only be a personal disaster, but could contribute to a sharp rise in hunger and malnutrition at local, national, and global levels.

Help us prevent a hunger crisis

Every $1 you give becomes at least $10 in increased incomes for those working to improve their standard of living. We call this multiplier effect “the power of 10.” It empowers you to activate prosperity where it’s missing in the poorest places around the world.
