Enable the poor, especially women, to create a world without hunger and poverty.
Grameen Foundation is a global nonprofit organization that brings innovative and sustainable solutions to the fight against poverty and hunger. Together with local partners, we equip families, women, and smallholder farmers with resources and services that expand financial inclusion, strengthen resilience, enhance health and improve livelihoods.
Our approach combines the power of partnerships, digital technology, and self-help solutions.
- To achieve lasting change, we collaborate with local partners: companies, non-governmental organizations, government agencies and others that share a common interest in developing, delivering and sustaining innovative solutions to poverty and hunger.
- We strive to harness the unprecedented opportunities offered by technology, especially digital technology, to accelerate progress across our programs.
- Our solutions always promote self-help, and because children are most vulnerable to the ravages of poverty and malnutrition, we focus on women—their primary caretakers. We equip women to succeed at the very thing they are already determined to do—feed their children, improve their family’s health, and create positive change in their communities.

Where We Work
Grameen Foundation works in developing nations where poverty and chronic hunger are suffered by a large portion of a country’s population, and in countries where wide disparities of wealth leave large populations marginalized.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., we are a 501(c)(3) organization with offices in the U.S., Africa, Asia, and Latin America. We work in the Middle East and North Africa through Grameen-Jameel Microfinance Limited, a joint venture, and in India through Grameen Foundation India, a wholly-owned subsidiary, and through Freedom from Hunger India Trust, an independent affiliate.
