Economic Empowerment and Poverty Alleviation

Economic Empowerment and Poverty Alleviation program is focused on supporting and empowering marginalized individuals and communities through various grassroots projects and initiatives including micro-finance and micro-credit for micro-entrepreneurship that address a broad range of health, economic, education, environmental and housing issues.

Our goal stretches much further than poverty eradication.  Through life skills and literacy education, self help groups and environmentally conscious micro finance opportunities, we are striving to enhance people’s capacity to live an enriched, engaged and sustainable life that makes them micro-empowered.

Economic Empowerment and Poverty Alleviation for womenSustainable Development Goal 1 of the United Nations calls for an end to poverty in all its manifestations by 2030. It also aims to ensure social protection for the poor and vulnerable, increase access to basic services and support people harmed by climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters.

Globally, more than 800 million people are still living on less than US$1.25 a day, many lacking access to adequate food, clean drinking water and sanitation. Rapid economic growth in countries like India has lifted millions out of poverty, but progress has been uneven. Women are more likely to live in poverty than men due to unequal access to paid work, education and property.

New threats brought on by climate change, conflict and food insecurity, mean even more work is needed to bring people out of poverty.
