Our mission: To empower the poor, especially women, to create a world without poverty and hunger.

Empower Women Today  

Grameen Foundation pairs people with technology to lift entire communities out of poverty. We design digital platforms to help people in developing countries save for the future, invest in their businesses, and improve their farms. Then, we train some of these people, mostly women, to become Community Agents, who deliver these tools to their communities.

The result is a chain reaction of benefits for women and families. Incomes and food security increase. Families can pay fees to send their children to school. They can build assets and endure emergencies. Each Community Agent can reach an average of 100 vulnerable households—or 400 people—in a year. And to date, Grameen has trained nearly 12,000 Agents.

In 2016, we set a goal of reaching 25 million people by 2025. So far, we've reached nearly 15 million.
