Activating family farms
In harsh climates and fragmented economies, continuous innovation is critical to survival. iDE has created The Activators Circle, a recurring giving program that empowers you to join us in bringing innovation and entrepreneurship to where it's most needed.
iDE has been putting business to work for the poor for more than three decades, using market based solutions to change the living conditions and livelihoods of millions of people around the globe.
How your donation becomes an investment:
iDE converts every $1 donation into at least $10 in increased incomes for the rural poor. Learn about how we conduct measurement and evaluation.
We're on a mission to develop innovative and compassionate solutions for the most pressing needs in the developing world.
Support from donors and foundations funds our efforts to directly address the parts of peoples’ lives that matter—we’re looking for what works, and you can help.
We have boots on the ground in eleven countries on three continents, and our teams live in the provinces, districts, and villages where we work.
