About Cisco & Global Citizen

At Cisco, we believe technology is the bridge to overcoming some of the world’s greatest challenges, and we’re proud to power Global Citizen’s movement to end extreme poverty. For nearly 30 years, we have invested in core issues we all share – the need for a home, food, clean water, an education, and the opportunity to make a living. Our hope is to create a digital economy in which everyone – regardless of gender, background or location – has the chance to thrive.
