Global Grassroots supports conscious social change, driven by and for vulnerable women at the grassroots level.
Their Academy for Conscious Change is an 18 month incubator offering mind-body trauma healing, social venture development skills, leadership training, personal transformation practices, seed grants and high-engagement support to help groups of disadvantaged women initiate their own sustainable social ventures. These ventures address the issues of highest concern to the women in their own communities, using methods chosen by the women themselves. They are not small businesses, but are instead micro-NGOs or business-social hybrids driven by a social purpose to address a priority issue facing women, such as domestic violence, water access or illiteracy
Global Grassroots targets the world’s most vulnerable women. They contend that wisdom exists at the grassroots level among those directly impacted by certain social issues. Women represent both those most invested in serving their community’s needs and those in greatest need of support to manifest their solutions.
Global Grassroots asserts that deepening personal consciousness and contributing towards the common good are both essential to establishing a mindful society that will advance the greatest level of positive social change. They call this intersection of personal and societal transformation: Conscious Social Change.
