We focus on the assets, potential, and social capital of communities rather than their needs or disparities.

We believe that community insiders are the best people to lead change, and we invest into building their capacity as leaders.

Our work is focused on empowering community leaders to fight poverty and injustices through small-scale, community-led efforts. We do this through training and coaching, and connecting them to the resources, tools, people, and funds they need for their project's success.
