Who We AreWhat We DoOur VenturesWhere We WorkOur ImpactOur InsightsPress

Our mission is to catalyze women and girls as leaders of Conscious Social Change in their communities.

Conscious Social Change is the intersection of mindfulness, leadership, and social entrepreneurship whereby individuals may initiate change consciously, compassionately, and ethically.

Vulnerable Women as Agents of Change

We help grassroots teams of women provide safe, clean water access to their communities and, in so doing, solve water-related social issues that impact women and girls, including sexual violence and exploitation, girls' attendance in school, domestic violence, and water-borne illnesses, among other issues.

In 2016, Global Grassroots' teams currently in development will bring safe, clean water access - permanently and sustainably - to more than 30,000 people in Rwanda.

The cost of this clean water, along with important social change related to water access, equates to less than $7 per person. We believe we offer the most cost-effective water program in existence.
