We believe that the corporate sector has an important role to play in the fight against poverty. That’s why we work in partnership with companies like yours to create lasting change that is mutually beneficial and makes the world a better place for all.
Poverty reduction requires the kind of economic growth that enhances the ability of poor people to participate in and benefit from economic activity. This is often referred to as ‘pro-poor growth’. The private sector makes a crucial contribution to economic growth. Businesses can now use their most powerful and precious resource – people – to engage with communities in a structured way that will benefit all.
