Globally, 648 million people live in extreme poverty, defined as subsisting on less than $2.15 per day. Through our partnerships:

People gained vocational training or job readiness skills

People received capital to launch a small business

People secured a job or started a small business


In low-income countries, many jobs continue to be irregular or informal, which makes it difficult to have consistent income and safe working conditions. While gains have been made for equal treatment in employment, women still are at a disadvantage when it comes to equal pay and employment rates. Additionally, a high percentage of youth are neither in school nor employed. Supporting projects that invest in job training and ethical employment opportunities, especially for vulnerable populations, has a wide-scale impact on both families and economies.





One Day’s Wages comes alongside grassroots partners to support entrepreneurship, vocational training, and meaningful employment opportunities.  Since 2009, we have supported 59 jobs and skills projects in under-resourced communities, impacting over 235,000 people. Through our partnerships, Emeldah was able to grow her business to better provide for herself and her 6 children, and Trevor and his 15 classmates graduated from a computer program to equip themselves with skills for future employment.
