IIRR is working in Cambodia, The Philippines, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, and Zimbabwe to help communities develop sustainable and effective solutions to poverty. Since our work began in 1960, we’ve worked in partnership with local groups to improve life in their communities. Click the map and zoom in to learn more about where we work.

Easy ways for you to help


83 cents of every 1 dollar you donate to IIRR is sent directly to our programs in the field. Your donations help girls gain access to quality education, communities prepare for and mitigate disasters, farmers and entrepreneurs build skills and improve productivity, and students plant healthy indigenous vegetables to be used in school meals.
