Mission:

Future Without Poverty is a non-profit organization that was born through the realization that handouts were not enough to fight poverty. Simply making donations is not sufficient. Instead, sustainable opportunities are needed to adequately fight poverty. “The Myth of No Effect” is the belief that one person cannot make a difference. Future Without Poverty seeks to break this myth by showing that each person can make a difference in our global community. Working together, we can give everyone the opportunity to have a future without poverty.

Results:

Pilot Projects / Start-ups: we have started 17 projects in the past 10 years Project / Program: we have been asked to expand to 20 countries Activism / Advocacy: we have provide awareness via our three global college campus chapters, world-wide volunteer efforts and social media campaigns

Target demographics:

individuals and communities

Geographic areas served:

communities both locally and around the world

Programs:

access to potable water, access to electric (solar, wind, etc.), maximizing educational opportunities, and building opportunities for sustainable social enterprise. Future Without Poverty builds these opportunities by creating sustainable programs focused on the Four E’s: Education Empowerment Enterprise Environment Our programs are designed with the community and together we estimate the costs and time line. Through the generous donations, we are able to work with the community to complete the project.

Reviews for A Future Without Poverty Inc

I worked with A Future Without Poverty for about two years. During this time I was able to witness the international impact that this organization has on impoverished people. I will never forget the smiles of people we helped or what it looks like when people truly collaborate to get things done. These experiences not only touched my heart, but also helped to improve my own life and my capacity to be an advocate for disadvantaged people everywhere. I have used what I learned with A Future Without Poverty as a second grade teacher in a Title 1 school, and I believe I am a better teacher because of the skills and knowledge I gained with this agency. It really is a Great Nonprofit.

In my experience working for non-profit organizations to fight poverty and other injustices in developing countries, I believe Future Without Poverty is the most effective in their vision and focus to end poverty. Their work has played a significant role in helping make a difference in poor communities; the activities performed by this non-profit are the kind that we need all non-profits to do in order to truly move forward toward this cause.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find ways to promote it in a larger scale in order to attract more volunteers.

Working with A Future Without Poverty as a MSSW student helped guide me on a path of future international social work and music. I'm forever grateful for the experiences that helped to change me and show me more of the harsh realities of poverty and the creative ways to work towards positive change.

I'm glad that there is organization's of volunteering people that care about helping out the less fortunate people. This organization is serious and is real. You can have trust that your donations are going to get to the hands of the people in need. I'm hoping that one day poverty will disappear and that people will have the minimum necessary to live worthily.

I am really happy for what Future Without Poverty has been doing since the first time I have heard of them. It was a couple of years ago, but man I am so touched by what you do that I really hope that god bless all of you people.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

tell all my friends and family to help FWP and keep in touch with them so this world could, and will, be a better place for everyone.

When I met FWOP I knew of this fundation had much to contribute to this world. I've been following your work and I think there have been many important goals for the foundation. The projects have been done with all the passion of the guys volunteers and the beneficiaries have managed to continue them and live better every day for them. I am proud to witness their amazing work and would continue to be part of the project.

I have been very impressed with the creative and cooperative efforts of A Future Without Poverty. It is encouraging to hear stories of people taking action to make a real difference.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Focus on raising awareness and duplicating successes in more locations. This will require new connections with donors, participants, and communities.

I first worked with FWOP as a volunteer/student at the University of North Texas. We were working on a water project for a rural village under support from Rotary International. It was a great project, working along side of the local community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get adequate funding to hire full time staff.
