OUR PROMISE

ABOUT US

A nonprofit international development organization founded in 1971, Pact works on the ground in nearly 40 countries to improve the lives of those who are challenged by poverty and marginalization. We strive for a world where all people are heard, capable and vibrant.

WE EMPOWER

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.

WE DO

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.

WE BELIEVE

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.
