We couldn’t do this alone.

IDEO.org is using human-centered design to improve the lives of people in low-income communities across the globe. Of course, we can't solve the world’s most intractable poverty-related challenges alone. Here are the people and organizations making it possible for us to help design a better world with everyone.
