Global Grassroots

GLOBAL GRASSROOTS’ mission is to catalyze women and girls as leaders of conscious social change in their community. Based in East Africa, our Academy for Conscious Change is a social venture incubator and experiential leadership program for vulnerable women and girls, including widows, orphans, war and genocide survivors, women with HIV/AIDS, subsistence farmers, and women with only a primary school education. Our programs enable our participants to design and initiate their own solutions to the issues that affect women and girls, especially clean water access, sanitation and gender-based violence issues, and in so doing step into their natural capabilities as mindful leaders.
