650 million people live in extreme poverty in the world today, defined by the World Bank as those living on $2.15/day or less. Trickle Up’s mission is to partner with women in extreme poverty to build economic opportunity and drive inclusion. We support women and highly vulnerable populations to forge resilient pathways out of poverty by starting microenterprises and building livelihoods. We drive large-scale change by partnering with local organizations, global institutions, and local governments, helping them adopt and adapt evidence-based, proven programming. Since 1979, Trickle Up has reached 2.3 million people through partnering with 460,000. We aim to serve 45,000 women this year, reaching an additional 225,000 currently living in extreme poverty. We have active projects in Colombia, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Mexico, and Uganda, and teams based in India, Latin America, Uganda, and the U.S. Our goal is to reach 5 million people by 2030 by partnering with a total of 1 million women participants living in extreme poverty.
