BENEFITING: GLOBAL GRASSROOTS
I am raising funds for Global Grassroots which helps women and girls organize and activate to affect change in their communities. Far from being a "handout", Global Grassroots educates and facilitates novice "change agents" as they take matters into their own hands. The end product is sustainable ventures (delivering safe drinking water, keeping girls in school, countering gender-based violence, etc) that these groups manage themselves. Some ventures have often created revenue streams that can then be rolled over to create yet more social ventures. These girls/women are orphans, war-widows, uneducated, HIV-AIDS survivors, and survivors of genocide. Yet they are rising up to become leaders within their communities.
