We provide catalytic capacity building services and provide international linkages to indigenous environmental non-profit organizations located in developing countries to enable them to optimize their impact.

We partner with local NGOs such as Centrul National de Mediu in Moldova and Dzomo la Mupo in South Africa, as well as the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Program and the GEF International Waters program and international funding and finance organizations.

We provide capacity building support to local environmental NGOs focused on Integrated Water Resource Management, cultural biodiversity, forest preservation and reforestation, food security, regenerative agriculture,  biomass energy, green job development, and ecotourism.

We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization that has been providing capacity building services and funding in developing countries since 2008. We do not accept unsolicited funding requests.
