Catalyzing Women Change Agents
Global Grassroots is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2004 that supports conscious social change, driven by and for vulnerable women at the grassroots level.
Our Academy for Conscious Change is an 18 month incubator offering mind-body trauma healing, social venture development skills, leadership training, personal transformation practices, seed grants and high-engagement support to help disadvantaged women initiate their own civil society organizations.
We target the world's most vulnerable women. We contend that wisdom exists at the grassroots level among those directly impacted by certain social issues. Women represent both those most invested in serving their community's needs and those in greatest need of support to manifest their solutions.
Global Grassroots asserts that deepening personal consciousness and contributing towards the common good are both essential to establishing a mindful society that will advance the greatest level of positive social change. We call this intersection of personal and societal transformation: Conscious Social Change.
We embrace the potential for every person to become an agent of change, and we invite you to join us in creating a just, compassionate and conscious society worldwide.
