We believe that by investing in people, we can build individual and community capacity. This is the best way to strengthen civil society – both locally and globally


Our giving is focused on ensuring that the right relationships and infrastructure is in place to help move commitment to action


By creating and strengthening institutions in civil society we enable people from different sectors to address critical issues constructively


Many of the groups we support work in particularly difficult or dangerous situations; their perseverance helps us ensure our programs are focused, responsive, and address the lived needs on the ground


On each visit, we come away more impressed with the quality of community members on the ground, their talent and creativity, their energy and determination – often in the face of overwhelming odds
