Grassroots Community Partnerships
A Social, Spiritual & Organizational Foundation
Community-led Organizations (CLOs) are at the core of our work because they form the foundation for social, environmental and spiritual prosperity in their own communities. Our CLO partners — which we also call our grassroots partners — originate from and function within existing social networks, and are typically led by one or two respected individuals. CLOs work to meet locally identified needs, and as such, are perfectly positioned to make sustainable social change.
Because CLO leaders are deeply connected to their communities, they are able to identify and mobilize them in a way that outsiders would easily overlook. MAMA HOPE’s CLO partners are doing transformational, frontline work in each of their pockets of the world — from ensuring that people have enough food to eat and water to drink, to transforming unsustainable farming methods, to educating adults and children, to ensuring access to quality health care.
