We can talk about innovation and we can talk about technology, but when we work on poverty reduction, the most important thing we need to talk about is community.

And it is only by working together with the social innovation community that we can ensure that these new tools can reach millions and have a lasting impact.

As we come to the end of the year, we reflect on 2014.

In 2014, we more than DOUBLED the number of Campaign Commitments, and in the past two years, 54 Commitments have been announced by 48 organizations, including AGFUND, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, the International Labour Organisation (ILO), BRAC, Grassroots Capital Management, Red Financiera Rural, Oikocredit, and Grameen Foundation. These organizations join a coalition to advance the industry toward helping 100 million families lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

With the first 5 installments of the Campaign’s new E-Workshop Series featuring Commitment-making organizations, more than 400 participants learned important practical lessons on innovations and tools that work to support those making the journey out of extreme poverty.
