About the organisation

Organisation Name : ygap
ygap exists to back impact entrepreneurs - or as we like to call them ‘local leaders’ - with solutions that uplift people from poverty in some of the world’s toughest communities. We believe the best solutions are entrepreneurial, so we focus on supporting early stage ventures that exist to improve access to education or healthcare, create jobs or build safer homes. We believe this is the most effective, sustainable means of tackling poverty because local leaders understand the unique challenges in their communities. As of today, 365 ygap impact entrepreneurs have significantly and measurably changed the lives of 472,637 people living in poverty across Africa, Asia and Australia by helping them with a better income, a better home, a better education or reducing their risk of suffering from preventable disease or violence. Our Values: Humility; it’s not about us, it’s about the people we serve; Empathy; we genuinely care about the work we do; Integrity; we work like everyone is watching; Effectiveness; we make decisions and get things done; and Innovation; we challenge assumptions, test new ideas and take smart risks.
