    Our difference

    We empower people to become Community Agents, entrepreneurs who serve their communities with open-source, accessible digital technology that gives very poor people the tools they need to improve their lives.

    Partnerships are core to our work. Solutions that address multiple dimensions of poverty—including access to financial, agricultural or health services and knowledge—call for partners with a range of expertise. From local organizations to multinational corporations to government agencies, the right combination of partners is essential to success.
