The Pledge Story
Pledge believes that no person should live in poverty, so we've made it our mission to end poverty in Greater Manchester.
Our mission is end poverty in Greater Manchester for those people who are experiencing homelessness and unemployment. We do this by providing grants to charities and social enterprises who work with these groups.
Mylo Kaye, who has run multiple tech companies for the past six years started Pledge in 2018 to help the rising number of people who are living in poverty, including the homeless epidemic facing Greater Manchester.
The North West saw the most significant increase of rough sleeping this year, 39% more than in 2016.
Once homeless himself, Mylo has combined his experience of being homeless with that of his time in the tech industry to launch the charity, which helps those living in poverty, and also sharing Pledge’s technical expertise with other charities.
