Partners In Development:



Since 1990, we’ve been partnering with those born into extreme poverty, believing they knew what support they needed to change their lives. Through this partnership, we developed our Whole Life Transformation Model, which provides the tools necessary for those living in extreme poverty to change the future for themselves, their families and their communities. Interested in learning more?


Our Approach

Partners in Development (PID) provides those living in extreme poverty the tools to change their future through our Whole Life Transformation model. With a variety of context-specific programs, we engage communities so they can improve their lives and the lives of future generations.
