Our Mission

To empower and equip leaders from impoverished & oppressed communities to transform their communities through grassroots social change.

See why this matters

We believe that solutions to poverty, injustice and inequality must be led by community insiders - those who intimately know their own community and share the same ethnic, socioeconomic and cultural background.

But community insiders face many barriers to becoming organizational leaders often because of their race, socioeconomic status and culture.

Our program was created to address the gap in access and inclusion of community insiders as changemakers in the global philanthropic sector.

We can only achieve our goals of making this world better for those on the margins when  the strength of local communities is our priority, and when the people who intimately know their own community are the ones leading change.

Join our movement for community-led development by building the capacity of community leaders.
