Building Enduring Livelihoods campaign

MEDA’s business-solutions approach to poverty is having an amazing impact and garnering much attention. As a result, there are a growing number of opportunities to get involved – increasing impact beyond what we ever dreamed possible. Your financial gift is what makes this a reality!

An exciting opportunity to help 10 million entrepreneurs

Today, through our Building Enduring Livelihoods (BEL) campaign, we’re working to fund 31 major MEDA projects, which will help an estimated 10 million entrepreneurs lift their families and communities out of poverty.

Through this campaign, we’re looking to raise $50 million in private donor support, which will unlock over $300 million dollars from institutional funders to support this work. This means every $1 dollar given by private donors will be leveraged 7X in impact with matching funds from institutional partners.

Working together to reach our goal

We’re excited to report that, as of April 2019, we have:

  • $44 million in commitments
  • 6.4 million entrepreneurs and their families are living more dignified, prosperous lives

Together, we are still looking to secure $6 million in private donations to help 3.6 million families and reach our goal.
