Our Work

We directly manage our own programming through field offices and make grants to organizations working on the ground to improve food security, family health, financial wellbeing and education in communities around the world.

Field Offices

Along with making grants to organizations, we employ dedicated staff in Ghana, Kenya, and Ecuador who design and implement programs directly. While each field office has distinct programs and goals, they all aim to reduce poverty, promote wellbeing, and enhance resilience in the communities they serve. Meet the teams who make it all happen.


Our field office in Ecuador is located in Paragachi near Otavalo in the Northern Andes. Our staff works to promote sustainable agriculture practices, where farmers learn and share lessons for improving soil fertility, protecting natural resources, and growing nutritious food on the steep slopes of the Andes.


Our field office in Ghana is located in the Upper West Region—one of the country’s driest and least supported regions. Our approach in Ghana is community-driven and works to address many barriers related to livelihoods in this semi-arid region, including access to water, sanitation and hygiene, opportunities for education, and women’s empowerment. Read more about our work here.


Our field office in Kenya is located in Esabalu in Western Kenya, where our team implements programs in agriculture and education. Our Farm Input Program works to improve food security and livelihoods through loans and training in agriculture practices. Our Education Learning Volunteer program and adult literacy courses bring education to all ages. Watch this video to learn more.
