Get Involved

Global Grassroots welcomes individual and group support for and engagement with our work. We invite you to peruse our offerings of resources and ideas for your support:

Our greatest need is always for fundraising so that we may continue to grow our work and fund new social projects benefiting women. There are numerous ways groups may get involved in sponsoring a project or conducting a fundraising event to help engage their community in supporting our programs.

Take the example of Cherokee Elementary School in Scottsdale, Arizona. An initiative led by parent and activist Jami Schulman has engaged students, teachers and the broader community in learning about water issues in Rwanda. The school designed their own water bottles which they then sold to raise money, which has helped launch the Have a Good Life water project in Rwanda.

For more fundraising ideas, such as how to host an African dinner party, or a screening of The Devil Came on Horseback, contact us at

Global Grassroots feels it is critically important to help break down the disconnect that often exists between those living in the West and the underserved women we support in Africa. One way to help people feel more connected is to host an awareness-raising event or form a circle in your community that will make a commitment to personal and societal transformation. In addition, consider inviting Global Grassroots founder, Gretchen Steidle, to host a workshop or speak at your event.
