We partner with organizations in Indian Country and Tanzania that are working towards systemic change through holistic, evidence-based approaches in early childhood education for children ages 3-5. We help our partners improve the lives and futures of the children, families and communities they serve through knowledge sharing, program development, capacity building, advocacy, and resource development.
We invest in local organizations and leaders to develop culturally grounded programs and help build strategic connections to broader networks of impact. We value and invest in building strong relationships with our partners, as this facilitates shared learning and creates new opportunities to support our partners’ visions for their work. Our efforts to build strong partnerships include:
We recognize that our partners know best when it comes to their own communities. We follow their lead and offer our resources and connections to help move their efforts forward. This approach leads to a unique grant process where we prioritize developing strong working relationships upon which bold collaboration with ambitious goals can flourish.
