Plant With Purpose recognizes that poverty is more than just a dollar amount but rather a condition of lacking choices and security. We define poverty using a multidimensional poverty index (MPI) similar to the tool used by the United Nations and other development institutions. Our MPI looks at 12 indicators of poverty including money in savings, meals eaten per day, access to water, and education for girls. Learn more about our indicators and why we use them here.
