How does Plant With Purpose define poverty?

March 22, 2022

We recognize that poverty is more than just a dollar amount but a condition of lacking choices and security. Plant With Purpose uses a multidimensional poverty index (MDPI) similar to the tool used by the United Nations and other development instiutions. Our MDPI 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.
