What is Because International?

Fighting poverty with innovation.
Because International believes everyone deserves a chance to succeed. Their mission is to leverage innovation to fight poverty in three key ways.
1. Distributing simple, innovative products like The Shoe That Grows to help make daily life easier for people living in poverty.

2.Manufacturing products in the countries where they’re distributed most to create jobs and lift families out of poverty.

3.Working with entrepreneurs to develop their ideas for products so that they can in turn create jobs and fight poverty.
