Change can only last when it starts within. Impact Poverty Foundation fights the worldwide poverty epidemic with one tool: Dignity.
IPF works locally with disadvantaged families in Africa, South Asia and the Americas, helping them release their own entrepreneurial spirits and community strengths. Neither aid nor trade can match the dignity of rebuilding one’s own family income and opportunity. IPF provides tools and teaching to local leaders, who know best the community’s needs and solutions.
IPF is a charitable foundation and in-field project facilitator, working at two simultaneous goals: building sustainable family incomes and self-sufficient social services. Initiatives include income-generation projects such as farm irrigation and micro-industry, which in turn improve access to drinking water, literacy, vocational training, housing and preventative health care.

We invite you to share our stories. Watch, listen or read about people and their communities where your donations are offering them a chance to break free from poverty. Imagine a mother of two living in a small impoverished village in India. Her illiteracy is pushing her into depression and sinking her family deeper into poverty. Access to an IPF sponsored project has allowed her to become literate, create new income for her family, found a local credit union and give back by being a literacy program teacher in her village.
