YOU ARE THE ROOTS

OF THIS GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT

We like to say that monthly givers are the roots of our grassroots movement. The Roots is a community of ordinary people coming together through simple acts of generosity to alleviate extreme global poverty. You keep us sustainably rooted in our core mission to alleviate extreme global poverty. Your monthly support allows us to maintain a thorough vetting process for partnerships around the world and to do so with a commitment to dignity, empowerment, transparency, mutuality, and impact.

 As a part of The Roots community, you may choose to give to our general fund or to our operations fund. There is no minimum amount requirement to be a part of The Roots. We believe that any gift amount, be it the cost of your weekly coffee or whatever you are able to give, can have a lasting impact. We do provide a couple of specific giving options below, but you are not limited to these options. We invite you to get creative in building habits of generosity! You can learn more about giving options below.

Give $57 monthly

$57/month represents giving the equivalent of $1.90/day. Living off of $1.90/day is the global poverty line. Commit to giving $57/month in recognition of our global neighbors who live at or below the global poverty line.

MEET ARIF AND SHARIN

“We walked 16 days to get to this refugee camp.”

When Arif’s daughter Sharin was just 3 months old, the military started firing rocket launchers into their village in Myanmar. Arif and his wife ran into the forest with their infant daughter in order to survive. “We were so hungry. We lost everything we owned including our home, land, and business.” Arif describes their life in Myanmar, “we have been persecuted for many years. They don’t want us to live there. They make it difficult for people to get an education.” He dreams of his daughter becoming a doctor. “I just want to do whatever I can to help that dream become true. I want to give her a better education than I ever had. I want her to live in safety as a citizen of a country that wants her.”

One Day’s Wages works with carefully vetted partners so that people like Arif and Sharin can find the safety, resources, and empowerment they need to have a bright future.
