One entrepreneur can change her community
And millions can change the world.
Imagine what millions can do
We believe that the best way to end poverty is to empower entrepreneurs. iDE coaches businesses that improve their communities and stimulates the market ecosystems in which they operate, helping them to succeed and multiply. In addition to economic prosperity, we ensure these sustainable businesses create gender equity, protect the natural environment, and build resilience to climate change. By scaling up our model, these entrepreneurs will change the world.
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.
Even remote farmers are threatened by COVID-19.
Our usual support during the growing season has been hampered, or completely suspended in order to prevent the spread of the disease, and that’s why we’re trying new methods to help rural farmers.
