Academy for Conscious Change
Our work centers around our core Academy for Conscious Change. Our program supports teams of women who wish to launch their own social change venture (a micro-NGO) and integrates a holistic balance of personal and social transformation. The Academy has four phases and lasts an average of 18 months:
- Intensive, interactive 40-hour training program, incorporating
(a) social entrepreneurship and non-profit management skills
(b) conscious leadership and personal growth practices
(c) mind-body trauma healing
- three-to-six months of hands-on non-profit venture development support
- seed grants and support during implementation
- 12-months non-profit apprenticeship with ongoing, high-engagement advisory support
On average, a venture serves 500-1,500 women and girls (water ventures can serve up to 3,000) with several ripples of impact and long-term transformation. Many teams begin to expand their projects within 12-15 months to address additional issues in the community.
Through a partnership with The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation's Replenish Africa Initiative (RAIN), 11 women-led Global Grassroots' teams are bringing safe, clean water access - permanently and sustainably - to more than 30,000 people in Rwanda in 2016. RAIN is generously providing 1/3 of the funding needed to launch our water teams. The cost of clean water, along with important social change related to water access, will equate to less than $7 per person once all teams are operating. We believe we offer the most efficient water program in existence. Will you partner with us to match RAIN's investment? Please click the DONATE NOW button and tell us how many people, at $7 per person, you want to give the gift of safe water. Thank you!
