The world’s poor need more than a hand-out to break free of poverty. They need a hand-up, a strategic investment in their lives that will bear fruit for years to come. Access to clean water and medical care is a foundational component in this empowerment process – needing to take place before business development can take root. This holistic approach to building capacity in the lives of the world’s less fortunate is the vision of IAS America. Our desire is to see individuals, families, and entire communities transformed through empowerment opportunities provided by people like you. Consider joining us as together we turn small investments into food for a lifetime for developing world entrepreneurs.
