We believe in the right and ability of people to drive their own destinies and maintain that the best solutions come from inside a community, not from outside.
Local leadership is at the center of every solution. Equipping individuals with the confidence and skills they need to be leaders in their communities furthers local ownership of development and instills problem solving capabilities that become embedded in the fabric of a community.
We are particularly focused on developing emerging leaders from communities that have traditionally been marginalized: women, youth, indigenous peoples, members of the LGBTQ community, and people with disabilities. Their talent and energy is needed if any country is to reach its full economic potential while also providing for the social good.
