Equipping leaders for sustainable community change
THE WORLD HAS ENOUGH CHARITY.
WHAT WE NEED IS EMPOWERMENT.
We focus on the assets, potential, and social capital of communities rather than their needs or disparities.
Because we believe that community insiders are the best people to lead change, we invest into building their capacity as leaders.
Therefore our work is focused on empowering community insiders to fight poverty and injustices through small-scale, community-led efforts. We do this through training and coaching of community leaders, and connecting them to the resources, tools, people, and funds they need for their project's success.
