2006: The beginning

End Poverty Now (EPN) was founded on August 21st, 2006, by students at McGill University, on a tri-pillar structure of Education, “InReach,” and Grassroots Projects. Within a few years, EPN developed into an independent organization apart from the university, bringing in professionals as advisors and staff. Since then, EPN has experienced growth and change under different leaderships.

2013: A fresh start

As of January 2013, under the leadership of a new Board of Directors, End Poverty Now began undergoing a comprehensive internal restructuring process, aimed at substantial improvements within the organization’s communications, marketing, administration, and volunteer management operations.

More importantly, EPN changed its mission and structure; its organizational structure was modified to operate at a more grassroots level, and its mission became one which emphasized the long-term sustainability of grassroots projects.  The previous tri-pillar mandate was eliminated, and EPN shifted its focus to Grassroots Projects, EPN Chapters, and Educational Initiatives (a new division).

A new website was launched in April 2013, along with Perspectives on Poverty, a blog which aims to explore unique perspectives on issues relating to poverty and act as an online resource centre for poverty education.

Thanks to EPN’s dedicated staff and volunteers during this time, the restructuring process has so far been a success, and the future of End Poverty Now is brighter than it has ever been.
