How your support helps

Food Security and Hunger Relief
Too many people across the globe do not eat enough to keep well nourished. Widespread hunger is often exacerbated when people do not have adequate resources to produce food or protect crops against environmental damage such as drought or disease. These nonprofits are working not only to provide food for those in need, but also to ensure that people across the world are equipped with effective strategies to feed themselves.
Essential Needs and Resources
Clothing, transportation, means for communication, a bed to sleep on-- these are the necessities of a modern life and the fundamentals of a decent living. Organizations in this group provide people with the basic resources required to navigate our world, so that all people can experience adequate life standards.
Economic Empowerment
Enabling individuals to take advantage of the available opportunities for economic development involves development of human capital, infrastructure, regional competitiveness, social inclusion and literacy. By providing individuals with job and skills training, microfinance, and entrepreneurship support, organizations in this field are working to empower individuals not only to become independent from forms of aid, but also to prosper.
Durable and Safe Housing
Homelessness and inadequate housing are unfortunate realities for millions of individuals and families around the world. These organizations are working to change that fact. By providing shelter for people that is both safe and secure, nonprofits in this group strive to ensure that every person has a roof over his or her head.
