Everyone deserves the opportunity to build a better future. This simple idea has been at the heart of TechnoServe’s work around the world for over 50 years. TechnoServe is a pioneer in leveraging the power of business and markets to create sustainable pathways out of poverty.

The low-income communities in which we work are full of enterprising people. Their small-scale farms and businesses are the keys to economic development. But they face many challenges: low literacy, lack of access to jobs and markets, unpredictable political dynamics and, increasingly, the effects of climate change. For many women and young people, the challenges are even more daunting. Working with TechnoServe staff, people around the world are lifting themselves out of poverty. The results are amazing...when incomes increase and living conditions for families get better, they are able to access health care and education previously out of reach. Communities and even whole countries are better off. 

We recognize and appreciate the value of a diverse workforce. We are a team of nearly 2,000 individuals working across 29 countries -- over 95% of our staff are from the countries in which they work. We have varied talents, backgrounds, personal histories, and worldviews. As such, TechnoServe encourages diversity in all levels and across all facets of our organization. Diversity, equity, and inclusion is at the heart of what we do.
