I’ve been following Global Roots Int’l on Instagram. I’m impressed with their unique approach to improving world food supply by teaching kids how to grow healthy food. It seems like a no brainer but maybe it takes a small, innovative organization like Global Roots to to realize such a simple concept and to execute it so well. Sometimes starting small means starting nimble. I look forward to seeing this organization and their projects grow.
My son and I attended a presentation given by Rick that was outstanding! The quality of the slideshow was impressive and the content tugged at your heart. You can tell immediately when someone is passionate about what they do. Rick and his organization are top notch! We are in great need of more of this on our planet and I am deeply interested in volunteering for them.
I love the work they are doing globally helping the world's neediest orphanages and children with essential supplies. Beyond that, they have discovered the real secret to creating lasting change is in establishing programs and projects that empower local communities, humanitarians, and individuals. They are building greenhouses and children's gardens that provide sustainable nutriition so children can go to school, providing food education, building vocational training camps, schools & nurseries. They educate on water sanitation, HIV prevention, poultry farming, and set up solar cooking programs. l like that their programs will have lasting impact. I am impressed that that 92% of their donations went to projects last year. Before donating I looked at their 990 and see they do not take any huge salaries. In fact I saw no salaries! I met the founder, Rick Montgomery who seems to be a true humanitarian. I'm happy to see this non-profit is growing and look forward to see their continued good works.
