Hand in Hand and the IKEA Foundation teamed up to lift over 100,000 people out of poverty, and tackled climate change at the same time. Taking on the dire issue of 42% of Kenyans living below the poverty line, Hand in Hand created saving groups, provided training and microcredit, encouraging entrepreneurship and creating over 38,000 jobs.
