On December 6, 2017, we attended the event "Articulation for prosperity: exchange of experiences and good practices in joint strategies for overcoming poverty", promoted by Prosperidad Social. There, we were awarded along with USAID and Fundación Capital with the recognition of innovation, thanks to the LISTA initiative of the Fundación Capital organization.

The LISTA Initiative consists of the application of strategies to overcome poverty. The support that Mercy Corps provides to this project consists of financing through "Innovations Investment", a joint effort of our organization with the Skoll Foundation and USAID.

The objective of this event was to reward those interventions and initiatives that have had a positive impact on the Five Dimensions of the Multidimensional Poverty Index: Education, health, childhood and youth, housing and work. In addition, during this event, we had the opportunity to enjoy a space for interaction and exchange of ideas with different representatives of the other attending organizations.

We thank Prosperidad Social for this recognition and the Fundación Capital and USAID organizations for their support and collaboration.
