In addition to our United States operations and country offices, Grameen Foundation works with two wholly owned subsidiaries and two independent affiliates; founded and co-leads a number of joint ventures; and is a sister organization of the Grameen family of organizations. We also participate in a number of alliances that bring together the collective strength of partners.
We work closely with two independent affiliates, Freedom from Hunger and Freedom from Hunger India Trust. We have two fully owned subsidiaries: Grameen Foundation India, set up in 2011 to further our mission in the country, and TaroWorks™, which offers digital technology data solutions for nonprofits and social enterprises.
We cofounded and participate in a number of joint ventures to support impact investing, including Grameen-Jameel Microfinance Limited in the Middle East and North Africa, and Grameen Capital India.
Grameen Foundation’s roots and strongest fraternal relations are with the Grameen family of organizations founded by Professor Muhammad Yunus in 1997, with the launch of Grameen Bank in Bangladesh.
Alliances with like-minded organizations enable us to progress more swiftly toward our goals, particularly in the field of financial inclusion.
