A nonprofit international development organization founded in 1971, Pact works on the ground in more than 30 countries to improve the lives of those who are poor and marginalized. We strive for a world where all people exercise their voice, build their own solutions and take ownership of their future.
people by building their ability to do three things: to live a healthy life, to earn a dignified living, and to benefit from the sustainable use and management of the natural resources around them.
this in three main ways: by strengthening the capacity of local organizations and institutions, by forging effective governance systems and by transforming markets into a force for development.
the only way to achieve lasting, transformational change is with local solutions - created in partnership with the people we serve. We believe in an integrated approach that tackles poverty from all angles, and we believe that our progress must be measurable.
