Climate change and environmental problems affect all of us–but the burden is not distributed evenly. Communities in low-income countries suffer the most from these threats but often have the fewest resources to respond to them.
Around the world, however, TechnoServe is working to help enterprising women and men boost the resilience of their own farms and businesses, protect vital natural resources, and contribute to reducing carbon emissions and climate change globally.

We can't do it alone. Your activism and support make stories like Elisa's and Javier's possible. Sign today so that we can continue to champion Environmental Changemakers around the world!
