Impact

Thanks to the hard work of Winrock staff, our projects are making a profound, long-term difference in people’s lives around the world: Agricultural advancements have led to longer growing seasons, greater yields, increased family income, and year-round food security.

Some of the most remote villages now enjoy the benefits of electricity generated by renewable energy systems that power schools, health clinics, and households. Micro loans and training have given thousands of budding entrepreneurs, many of them women, the capital and skills they need to start small businesses and earn greater income.
