Tools for Anti-Poverty Organizations

You are here

It will take a global movement of organizations working together to eradicate global poverty. In this spirit, Grameen Foundation offers an array of products and services—originally designed for our own use—to help other organizations with similar missions be more effective.

We believe these tools will help organizations strengthen their programs, deepen their impact on poverty, and create lasting change.

Progress out of Poverty Index®

Leaders need access to reliable information in order to make smart decisions. We offer the Progress out of Poverty Index, a simple poverty measurement tool, for 46 countries around the world. The management teams of over 270 anti-poverty programs have used PPI data to improve their strategy for meeting the needs of the poor. Learn more at progressoutofpoverty.org.


Poverty-focused organizations face challenges in managing their people, information and products, especially in remote areas. TaroWorks™ is a mobile-based data tool that enables organizations to gain insight into their customers and increase the transparency of their operations. Learn more at taroworks.org.

Impact Investing

The poorest people are often concentrated in rural or difficult-to-reach markets known as “the last mile.” We invest in social enterprises and innovative microfinance institutions that seek to improve livelihoods in these remote areas. Learn more about how we are addressing this critical investment gap.

MOTECH Suite and Platform

We help organizations use mobile phones to deliver a range of health care services in poor and underserved communities.
