About: ProPoor’s mission is to empower NGOs, donors, and individuals by providing the tools to connect, and by facilitating the exchange of information.

Established in 1998, ProPoor is committed to the dissemination of information and promotion of sustainable development initiatives, in response to the needs of under represented and marginalized sectors of society in the South Asia.

ProPoor has developed a comprehensive Internet portal containing information about South Asian non-governmental organizations, funding agencies, events, projects, jobs opportunities in social development, success stories of individuals as well as organizations, and other relevant links.
