The summer of 2009, I worked with Gretchen Steidle Wallace, founder of Global Grassroots, to evaluate the impact this wonderful organization had made in the lives of thousands of Rwandan women and men through its work in finding and developing social change agents. I was deeply touched by the courage of Global Grassroots’ leadership, the integrity of the Global Grassroots’ curriculum, and the dedication, heart, and spirit of the many community leaders Gretchen and her team found in urban and rural Rwanda. In two short months, I watched as Global Grassroots supported these leader’s social start-ups, encouraging them to grown into beautiful operations that touched on a diverse range of issues from literacy to domestic violence. Many were well on their way to sustainability, some were in the process of learning how to keep their organization afloat while meeting their social mission, and others were just starting to carve out their dreams. No matter what the stage, Gretchen and her team always found the right way of giving these new community leaders the necessary tools, resources, and encouragement for success. I cannot wait to see the impact Global Grassroots will have in Rwanda 10 years from now!

I was not only able to analyze the impact Global Grassroots was making, I also had the opportunity to look at the impact of the social start-ups that Global Grassroots supports! Amazing work on both sides!

Global Grassroots provides opportunities for marginilized women to to reclaim their dignity and make a positive impact in their communities. The organization, under the leadership of Gretchen Wallace puts into practice the concept of "help a man, you help an individual - but help a woman, you help a community!" Through social entrepreneurial projects at the grassroots level, women are able to gain independence and build stronger communities.

Global Grassroots has achieved something extraordinary: a marriage of a philosophically thoughtful and sound approach to the problem, with actual hands-on, incredibly impactful work with the most marginalized and underserved women. Gretchen is changing and will continue to change the world.
