Global Grassroots is one of the greatest champions of people in developing nations. Their impact is multifaceted in training women to become agents of social change, aiding in the development of social change and supplying the funds necessary to implement the social change. One of the greatest aspects of GG is that its’ work focuses on the empowerment of the social change agent by creating a network of support, multidimensional training and friendship. Having worked with GG in Rwanda the summer of 2009, I have witnessed first hand the impact of GG on the ground. The empowerment it gives to individuals and communities is truly impressive. There are not enough words of praise for Gretchen Wallace and the organization she has created.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Rwanda. I while in country I was able to meet with each GG working group twice to see their accomplishments, listen to their stories and hear their praises for GG. I also participated in a Training Workshop for the groups and saw the desire to learn.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
its unwavering commitment to the GG mission. There is nothing hidden, no agendas, no egos, just a desire to help heal the world. I am learning so much from Gretchen Wallace about NGO's, giving and personal growth! I can not wait to help GG, in any manner!
