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.
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.
Our Awards and Recognitions
While the bottom line for iDE is improving the lives of the farmers and poor families we work with, we appreciate it when our efforts are singled out by those who evaluate effectiveness and impact.
