Movement Building

Unequal power breeds an epidemic of poverty, inequitable development, environmental degradation and other forms of injustice. The antidote to these ills is a network of vibrant and democratic social movements, which have the creativity and power to create a better world.

Grassroots supports social movements by nurturing leadership (especially among women and youth), and by helping our partners train and organize their constituents, build alliances, and advocate with decision-makers.

Our movement building grants serve to connect social movements within countries and across borders, sectors, or issues in order to build their capacity, strength and global voice.

Through grantmaking, education and advocacy, Grassroots International connects activists, donors and people concerned about sustaining our world.
