Projects & Partners

EEP/Shiree’s objective was to lift 1 million Bangladeshi people out of extreme poverty using two primary mechanisms, a Scale Fund and an Innovation Fund, supported by research and advocacy work streams. Both Funds leveraged the technical, geographical and contextual expertise of organisations with a long track record of working on economic development in Bangladesh, and applied this to tackling the problem of extreme poverty. Whilst the Innovation Fund looked to test novel approaches to improving the lives of extremely poor households, the Scale Fund aimed to scale up proven models for sustainably lifting ultra-poor households out of extreme poverty.
