Mission: GO invests in leaders who have the capacity to end poverty in their communities.
Results: Started in 2008 with $2,000 investment and raised $3.4M YTD in 2011. We have invested in over 25 leadership teams globally that have created over 2,500 permanent jobs for those living in extreme poverty while providing access to quality foods, healthcare, and housing.
Target demographics: Developing world communities where individuals earn less than $2 per day.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 250,000 people improve their wellbeing.
Geographic areas served: Africa, Southeast Asia, Central America
Programs: We believe that community-based leaders have the wisdom and ambition to address the root causes of poverty — if only they were properly supported. By engaging a global network through technology, GO is able to provide these leaders with the tools — visibility, training and seed funding — they need to bring their projects to scale and accelerate systemic change in their own communities and beyond.
