We Effect work to end poverty worldwide. The core strategy is to strengthen cooperatives of women and men living in poverty through membership-based democracy, long-term economic thinking, social responsibility and transparency. This results in increased income for families, food on the table and a roof over their heads – enabling people to raise themselves out of poverty for good.
