Women are a powerful force in ending extreme poverty.
Each year, Trickle Up helps thousands of women in Central America, India and West Africa escape extreme poverty by providing the tools they need to start businesses, learn new skills and build a better future. In their savings circles the women strengthen their finances, learn to improve their family’s health and empower one another to speak up at home and in their communities.
Together, these women accomplish extraordinary things*:
- 107% increase in people who reported that their families always have enough to eat
- 99% of participants reported having savings at the end of the program, up from 21% at the start
- 9 out of 10 women reported high participation in family decision-making
Donate today and connect your circle of family and friends to Trickle Up's RaiseForWomen campaign to support more women as they start their journeys out of extreme poverty.
