Global Grassroots' Women's Water Leadership Initiative in Rwanda and Uganda empowers vulnerable women to become change leaders in their community by designing and initiating their own solutions to the social issues that affect them most.View More
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 initiate change consciously, compassionately, and ethically.Learn More
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 2017, Global Grassroots' newest nine ventures are now bringing safe, clean water access - permanently and sustainably - to more than 31,000 people in Rwanda.
The cost of this clean water, along with important social change related to water access, equates to just $7-$8 per person. We believe we offer one of the most cost-effective water programs.Make A Donation
