Dear Supporter,

Thank you for your ongoing support to Village Earth's initiative to provide training and Support for Grassroots Organizations. The purpose of this initiative is to provide a long-term and adaptive support structure for grassroots organizations around the world to help them access information information and resources needed to help their communities gain greater control over the resources and decision-making that impacts their well-being. We are currently partnered with 20 organizations in 14 countries on 4 continents. 

Since our last report, we've been focused primarily on enhancing our training services for grassroots organization so we can have a broader impact and reach. Specifically, we're working on enhancing the capacity of our global affilites to build relationships with supporters around the globe to diversivy their income sources which builds greater programmatic autonomy. We plan to release these resources fall 2016. 

Your support helps makes our work possible and we encourage you to make a contribution to this project on Globalgiving's forthcoming match day June 15th. 


Greetings! You are receiving this report because you either contributed to this project on or signed-up to receive updates. I want to take this opportunity to thank you again for your support. Our program to provide support for grassroots organizations, called our Global Affiliate Program, has been very active this Winter helping our partner organizations develop and implement fundraisign campaigns through and other channels. We feel Globalgiving is our most important partner because they give our Global Affiliates lots of exposer to new donors and provide a flexible format for them to promote their various causes. 

Village Earth has also been active implementing an evaluation protocol for our affiliates using a standard organizational capacity assessment tool. While currently we are working to establish a baseline we look forward to comparing our impact in enhancing organizational capacity against this. 

Again, we thank you and for your support!

We are pleased to announce that this fall we have added three new innovative grassroots organizations to our Global Affiliate Program.

To date, we are partnernered with 20 different organizations in 14 countries. 

The three organization accepted into our program include:


Institute for Cultural Affairs - Nepal


CRDT’s mission is to sustainably improve food security, incomes, and living standards of subsistence rural communities in support of environmental conservation throughout Cambodia. We do this by providing sustainable livelihood development through community organization, business growth and environmental protection.

Growing Liberia Democracy


GOLD has set as it mission to promote poverty reduction as well as democratic and high quality governance in Liberia. The promotion is done through targeted interviews and continues with concept mapping exercises and community capacity building. The promotion seeks to empower local authority and their community to be able to effectively engage their law makers as to make policy decisions favorable for Liberians and to be fully transparent.


The Vision of GOLD is that everyone in Liberia has a good life and that the Governance of the country is of high quality and Democratic is ensured.

Also during this period, Village Earth implemented a comprehensive organizational capacity assessment which will establish a comparable baseline for all of our global affiliates. While we are still waiting for all the results to come in, we hope to be able to report on this date after the new year. 

Most recently, we have been actively supporting our affiliates to develop end of year fundraisign plans and look forward to working with them over the Holidays to help them achieve their respecrive fundraising goals. For the lates information about these campaigns, please like our

First of all, if you're receiving this report there's a good chance you donated to this campaign of Village Earth and so let me start by thanking you! Without your support our work wouldn't be possible. 

This will be the last report we submit to Globalgiving before the end of our fiscal year (which ends today, June 30th). Having completed our finally tally of the year, I'm happy to announce that this has been our most successful year yet for our support of grassroots organizations around the globe. We are currently partnered with 17 different local grassroots organizations and provide a suite of services such as fundraising support, technical support, information, advocacy, research and training. Because we focus on a small number of organizations, we can provide one-on-one support, working together as allies.

This spring we implemented a standardized assessment of capacity for each of our Global Affiliates for which we are still waiting to receive all the results. This information will be critical for us in the coming year to provide more targeted support to help develop their capacity to access and manage resources and build real organizational power in their communities. In support of this strategic direction, we are currently developing a series of online courses that we'll make available to existing and interested affiliates in the coming year. 

We are exciting to see the growth of this program last year and look forward to growing and refining it this coming year. We hope you'll be along for the ride!

Thank you so much!
