Featured Donors

TechnoServe is able to maximize its impact in poor communities thanks to the generous support of our donors.

Meet some of the people behind our latest efforts to empower men and women to lift themselves out of poverty. 

Praise from Supporters

"TechnoServe has consistently impressed me, both as a volunteer as well as a donor. The organization has a tremendous impact on people around the world, by providing individuals with the tools (rather than just a charitable payment) that they need to lift themselves out of poverty – and remain out of poverty for the long-term."

"TechnoServe is one of only a handful of non-profits that manages to 1) work closely and collaboratively with the private sector and 2) draw extraordinary talent from the corporate world into its organization. The result is a place filled with people who want to change the world, but who are also relentless in their pursuit of efficiency and delivery. Nobody at TechnoServe believes in charity  empowerment is what it's all about."
