TakePart World

Welcome to Our World.

We're debunking the myth that developing countries only generate headlines around poverty, disease, and incomprehensible war—and shining a light on the people, ideas, and innovations driving historic change. The surprising truth: In recent years, things have improved enormously. Thanks to the explosive economic growth of India, China, and other once-impoverished countries, the development of cheap and effective health care technologies, and a better understanding of what it takes to boost living standards, the last two decades have seen unprecedented gains.

We're here to bring you those stories from the frontlines of change.
