Dear Supporter,

I want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your support of our project on titled “Training and Support for Grassroots Organizations.” Your donations allow us to partner with innovative and impactful organizations around the world and provide them with technical support and training they need to more effectively carry-out their programs and get the resources they need to do their work on the ground. Since our last report in December and with your help, Village Earth was able to extend our support to two new grassroots organizations; “Mni” (which means “water” in the Lakota language) based on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota and Titukuke Rural Community Development Association based in Petuake Zambia.

Your donations help us to deliver support services like direct one-to-one project consultations and referral services. For example for Mni, Village Earth helped Mni develop a map used for education and planning purposes for their project site on the Cheyenne River Reservation n South Dakota USA. We also helped them communicate with current and future donors by helping them get their website online and promoting their project in print and radio. For Titukuke, we have helped them refine their messaging to better communicate their work to donors in the United States. Of course, for both organizations, Village Earth serves as  bridge to resources, connecting them with donors throughout the United States.

As a supporter of Village Earth I encourage you to share with us your questions and ideas for how we can improve both our work with communities and with our outreach to donors like yourself. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at

Once again, thank you for your support and solidarity!
