Lasting results require a long-term approach

For far too long the world has tried to lift others by providing resources, but resources can only go so far. At Cuso International, we believe in the long-term. Long-term partnerships. Long-term programs. Long-term results. We work on today's most important development issues by connecting marginalized groups with the skills they need to create lasting change. And we've been doing this for more than 60 years. How? Together with our partners, we are focused on efforts to advance gender equality and social inclusion, improve economic resilience, and deliver progress on climate action.

With your support, change happens

Addressing the food crisis in Peru

“Common Pots” or community kitchens have expanded across Lima, Peru, providing a unique social protection network against the escalating hunger crisis.

Providing safe, inclusive, and equitable economic growth for young women and LGBTQ2I youth in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The impact adds up. Last year, more than 1.9 million people around the world benefited from Cuso International projects and of those people, 66% were women and girls.
