Grow your impact
Every $1 you give becomes at least $10 in income for those living in poverty.
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.
Around the world, millions of people can't even imagine prosperity because their lives are burdened by poverty, poor nutrition, food insecurity, and water-borne disease.
You can change that.
As part of our global community, you can create entrepreneurial opportunities for parents working to raise families and for young adults trying to make a living in stagnant economies. Your donation isn't used up. It doesn't disappear after it's spent. It's invested and multiplied.

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.
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.
