Mission and Vision


Working for a more equitable, sustainable world


A world of sustainable living and opportunity for all


Our Approach

We Don’t Give

Things Away

We look for beneficiary participation in the form of financial contribution, labor, and hosting support to signal an interest in and commitment to the solutions we offer.

We Stick


We work to create lasting impact by building local capacity, working with local government institutions and other key stakeholders, and staying engaged with the people we serve.

We Take Diversity


Solving the complex challenges we take on requires many perspectives. Our team reflects the diversity around us and we make it a point to listen carefully to the voice of indigenous people, women, and youth.

We Go Where

Others Do Not

We prioritize working in some of the world’s most isolated, marginalized communities to empower healthy families to build resilient communities.


Our Values

Big Vision, Practical Action

We set ambitious goals and build the teams, systems, processes, and relationships to help us get there. We value true cost and balance creativity and practicality in our actions.

Our History

Setting the Stage 

The Rama Language Project

It all began in 1985 when linguist Dr. Colette Grinevald Craig began working with Ms. Nora Rigby of the Rama indigenous community to preserve and revitalize the Rama language on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua.
