Global Grassroots

Global Grassroots is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to catalyze women and girls as leaders of conscious social change in their communities. Global Grassroots' work is guided by four core values that form our theory of change: 1. Deepening personal consciousness and contributing towards the common good are both essential to social change. 2. One of the most effective levers of social change is a woman with the capability, resources, power, courage and inner commitment to initiate positive change for herself and others. 3.

Team Continues to Drive Advocacy Work with Local Leaders

Dear Friends,

 

We are happy to provide an update on the work of our social venture Light in Our Home, as well as an update on the progress of Global Grassroots' work to support change agent teams like Light in Our Home more broadly: 

 

LIGHT IN OUR HOME UPDATE

This year, Light in Our Home worked with district officials to recognize the people who benefited from their program as public examples of the team's work in reducing gender-based violence. Led by Monique Mukakageli, this venture team has been doing significant advocacy work, training local authorities and school administrators to mobilize against gender-based violence. So far, they have trained 384 local leaders who have, in turn, brought their new knowledge and skills to share with their communities.

 

Light in Our Home project leaders also helped to coordinate a new Global Grassroots training program in conscious social change and social entrepreneurship for venture team members who were not originally elected by their teams to attend the first Academy for Conscious Change. Further, project leader Monique Mukakageli, serves on Global Grassroots' Rwandan Advisory Council, which reviewed our entire program, goals, evaluation process and curriculum this year providing valuable recommendations for our efficiency and impact.  Monique, who serves on her local women's council and works as a headmistress of a local school ran for Parliament in the last election.

 

GLOBAL GRASSROOTS UPDATE

Global Grassroots is making innovative efforts to meet the growing demand for our programs and has created exciting new partnerships to catalyze conscious social change around the globe:

  • We are piloting a new “uAcademy” bootcamp for juniors and seniors at Dartmouth College this fall, through a partnership with the Dickey Center for International Understanding and the Rockefeller Center for Public Policy. This program will enable students to learn and apply our methodology of Conscious Social Change, driving social change in their home communities and abroad. This engaging new course represents a unique fusion of personal leadership, global citizenship, social entrepreneurship, and international development. We are thrilled to partner with Dartmouth College, and we hope to offer our workshops to more universities next spring!
  • We are initiating our first partnership program with the Komera Project in Rwanda, offering our social entrepreneurship training to 57 vulnerable high school girls this November. Our Girls Academy for Conscious Change will support the next generation of change agents in recognizing their power to transform themselves and their communities.

  • We are currently piloting our “eAcademy” e-learning program with women’s groups in ten countries and are preparing to publicly launch the platform in early 2013. This pioneering program will allow women’s groups in developing countries around the world to access our social entrepreneurship training online for free. Not only will these women be equipped to drive change in their own communities, but they will also become part of our global network of grassroots change agents, with access to ideas and best practices shared by other women around the globe.

Beginning in their own communities, Global Grassroots’ change agents are working building a culture that values, supports and empowers girls and women worldwide.

Team Begins Follow-up Evaluations with Community Trainers

Dear friends,

 

We are pleased to provide an update on the work of APROFER as well as an update on the work of Global Grassroots to support change agent teams like APROFER more broadly:

 

APROFER UPDATE

Since they began, APROFER has trained 75 community members on gender equality and property rights; each trainee then serves as a representative to offer trainings in his or her home community. The APROFER team is in the process of conducting a follow-up evaluation with their most recent cohort of community trainers in order to assess their current impact. We will be thrilled to share their impact once they have compiled the results of their training.
