Break Poverty Foundation is a French humanitarian organization that fights poverty by acting on its causes. In particular, it works with children and young people to help them escape poverty.

Break Poverty’s vision is to eradicate social determinism from an early age, combat poverty in the long term, and create a world where poor children do not become poor adults.

To give every young person access to a first job, whatever their background, and to change the scale of the fight against poverty, our teams place impact and innovation at the heart of our programs.
