Looking To Partner?

Empowering the urban poor requires a sustained and strategic approach. As our cities grow, and the number of urban poor grows along with them, now more than ever, we need to collaborate to address this complex, pressing problem.

There is a role for everyone to play – individuals, corporates, non-profits, governments. But we must work together to solve the puzzle of urban poverty and empower the urban poor. We urge you to join the fight.
