Our approach is bottom-up rather than top-down. We believe the most effective and lasting solutions come from local communities rather than outside experts. Our role is to strengthen these efforts not to design them. We partner with visionary local leaders and organizations with the determination to help their communities thrive and support them through capacity building, technical support, networks, and financial resources.

RESEARCH AND EVALUATION
We are committed to an evidence-based approach to development. We work collaboratively with communities and local organizations to continually improve our projects and test what solutions work best. Our latest initiative is to establish a network of affiliated local researchers that can conduct cost-efficient, high-quality evaluations and research.
STUDY ABROAD AND TRAVEL
We offer transformative educational opportunities to learn about village cultures, indigenous knowledge, and grassroots development. These programs strive to create lasting cross-cultural relationships built on mutual respect and reciprocity. Grounded in principles of responsible travel, they maintain the welfare of the communities and the integrity of the environments we visit. Travel with us.
