Lasting impact
on many dimensions of poverty

Fighting poverty requires action on several fronts. We need to ensure that people have access to food and a roof over their heads, that youth are given the opportunity to reach their full potential, and that vulnerable and marginalized people can emerge from isolation. Local communities need support to face all of these challenges.
