About us

Visionary leaders in the Global South are creating lasting solutions to their communities' most pressing challenges. IDEX connects you to them!

IDEX promotes sustainable solutions to poverty by providing long-term grants and access to resources to locally run organizations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Since its founding in 1985, IDEX has supported more than 500 grassroots, community-led projects led by women, youth and indigenous people in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Annually, our partners serve approximately 1.5 million people, enabling farmers to be sustainable agricultural innovators, helping families build income, equipping community members to fight against human-made climate threats, empowering more women as leaders, and much more.

We envision a global community that embraces economic, social, and cultural rights in which all people may access resources, preserve their environment, and are empowered to live free from poverty and discrimination. IDEX manifests this vision by engaging in democratic partnerships with our grantees and sharing the success of grassroots organizing with funders to build the capacity of locally-run initiatives.
