Extreme poverty means isolation and exclusion.

It means hunger, illiteracy, and instability.

Powered by discrimination based on gender, heritage, and disability, it endures over generations.

It is a powerful force that affects almost 800 million people worldwide living on less than $1.90 a day.

Combating it isn’t easy. That’s why Trickle Up fights hard.

Our partners and staff join forces with policy makers and allies to understand the barriers that hold people back and break through them.

With training, support, and seed capital our approach gives people the right resources and the confidence to use them. To empower them to transform their own lives, to break the cycle.

Trickle Up starts here.
