This project is truly grassroots in the very best sense of the concept. It grows from and is embedded in the culture, it realizes its power through collaboration and cooperation, and it seeks transformation through community engagement. Firmly rooted in the understanding that small changes can have a large and consequential impact, GVGF pursues a big vision with a big heart. Only with regard to funding is its footprint small.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

its nuanced understanding of the interaction of culture, resource, history, economics and education. And the very simple (but not simplistic!) approach to a helping people change the reality of their lives without having to change who they are.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

unabashedly committed to an ambitious vision but undaunted by a lack of funds.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Board Member & In addition to donating and soliciting funds, I encouraged, advised and cheered for Amy Awbrey as she conceived this vision and then, with few resources, made it possible.
