Together.Stronger. is a catalyst for shared prosperity – a collaborative impact platform that unites businesses, non-profits, government, and citizens to combine their strengths to alleviate poverty for millions of people worldwide.

Together is our “how”. Stronger is our “why”.

Our goal is to empower 50 million people to rise out of extreme poverty by 2020. We envision a world of shared prosperity through collaborative action and purposeful partnerships.


Why is Together.Stronger. different?

Despite decades of serious effort, and billions of dollars, the existing approaches to solving poverty have helped alleviate suffering, but they have not addressed the root causes of the problem.

We believe that no one individual, no one company, no one organization can break the cycle of poverty alone. That the way to achieve truly sustainable progress is through collaboration, not competition; common sense, not positioning.

That’s Together.Stronger.
