Poverty is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity.

Our market-based approach to fighting poverty is different, and it makes us more effective.
A person who works her way out of poverty can hire employees, make investments, and stimulate other local businesses. And thus the circle of prosperity grows beyond those we work with.
More than 90% of TechnoServe’s staff members are from the country in which they work – because no one understands a community better, or has a greater stake in its success, than the people who call it home.
