You have the power of 10.

Thanks to donors like you, iDE creates business opportunities that empower people to feed and protect their families through their own entrepreneurial drive. For every dollar you give, iDE will turn it into at least $10 of income for a family living in poverty. By donating to iDE, you’ve got the power of 10. 

Still Innovating

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.

The power of income.

When poor people get access to farm equipment, a toilet, a small loan, or connection to the marketplace, they can earn an income and escape the cycle of poverty. 

You have the power. Use it for good.

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.
