We accelerate change through innovative partnerships and programs.

With over three decades of experience spanning over a hundred countries, we have a bold vision for a better world where all communities thrive.

Our Strategy

Community-Centric Solutions

Including the perspectives of structurally excluded communities is the key to solving complex challenges. By working to shift unjust power dynamics, our goal is to establish an equitable decision-making environment that prioritizes community-driven solutions.

Groundbreaking Partnerships

Traditional siloed approaches hinder the effectiveness of systemic change initiatives. By fostering trust and inclusion among various stakeholders, our goal is to facilitate actionable collaboration between the public, private, and social sectors.

Catalytic Changemakers

Leaders across all sectors play a crucial role in instigating systemic change. By helping individuals across sectors recognize and adapt their ways of thinking and acting, our goal is to strengthen the ability of leaders to drive effective change.


Community Impact Strategies & Mobilization

Acknowledging and implementing community-driven ideas is the key to solving problems and improving lives. But frontline communities often face roadblocks like financial constraints, a lack of technology, and limited human resources. These hurdles make it tough to implement solutions and fully tap into their potential. On top of that, global systems tend to overlook or dismiss these communities in the decisions, policies, and practices that affect their lives directly.

Our work prioritizes locally-led perspectives as the foundation for building community resilience & agency.

  • Building local capacity in the form of support that is often overlooked in traditional top-down development approaches
  • Strengthening entrepreneurial ecosystems by fostering enabling environments and removing barriers to inclusion
  • Preserving and protecting cultural heritage and knowledge

Coalition Building & Activation

A lack of coordination and information exchange can lead to duplication of efforts, inefficiencies, and a failure to comprehensively address the global and pervasive nature of the current crises. And the inability to access resources can deepen disparities, perpetuating a cycle of disadvantage and hindering efforts to achieve social and economic equity.

Our initiatives bring together non-traditional partners to create strategies for change that tackle the root causes of inequity.

  • Convening multi-sector collaborators to drive systemic change and strengthen local economies
  • Implementing regenerative systems that ensure circular supply chains benefit all community members
  • Advocating for large, flexible, unrestricted, and long-term funding for collaborative action

Transformational Leadership Development

Leaders from various sectors have the power to spark systemic change. But without a shift in culture and mindsets, equitable and regenerative practices may be slow to adopt, hindering the ability of individuals to advocate for and implement cross-sector solutions.


Our programs provide valuable experiences that help individuals adopt new mindsets, enabling them to drive changes in cross-sector strategies and policies.

  • Encouraging leaders to develop fresh approaches to their work and decision-making, with targeted support provided to ensure the successful implementation of change
  • Facilitating cultural shifts toward equitable and regenerative practices through processes that help leaders unlearn long-held assumptions about their role in addressing global problems
  • Supporting community-defined needs with the transformative power of human-to-human interaction
