We build peoples' capacity to solve the problems that matter most in their communities.

We discover and support those who are inspired to serve, but who are lacking the raw material to bring their visions to fruition.

Our method is to help them source these materials. These may take the form of seed funding; strategic analysis; leadership training; local networking; or our international community of volunteer workers donating their time and skills.

We focus on mobilizing and using local resources that adhere to the principles of fair trade, social justice, cultural respect and ecological management.

We give 100% of every dollar donated directly to programs. All of our staff works for free. We maintain no overhead.
