Why International Grassroots?

Grassroots organizations possess the local knowledge needed to understand systemic problems in their communities and offer targeted solutions. Already interwoven into the social fabric, grassroots organizations have the trust, knowledge, and social capital required to effectively serve their communities.  

While local solutions are typically the most effective and long-lasting, less than 6% of U.S. philanthropic giving goes directly to international grassroots organizations serving their own communities.

One World operates from a place of trust for the grassroots members that they work with. This is important because it gives grassroots members ‘street cred’ in donor spaces that allow them to access more funding for the work being done on the ground.
