IDE is a Social Enterprise. We operate in eleven countries creating income opportunities for poor rural households. By providing our customers with extremely affordable solutions in the areas of water, sanitation and agricultre, and profitable links to markets, we can immediately double their income, creating economically stable communities and providing our farmers with life-altering choices. Over the last 28 years we have worked with more than 3.8 million families, increasing their aggregate income by over one billion dollars.
In Cambodia, we have reached 180,000 households with farming, business, water and sanitation solutions. We recently worked with IDEO to develop an HCD Toolkit for social enterprises. Our success using HCD to create an extremely affordable latrine led to a feature in Fast Company, presentations to Harvard, UNICEF, and the United Nations.
