This week at The Pollination Project, we recognize seven individuals from around the world with projects aimed at building the capacity of the community for long term change. In East Africa, women are equipped with agricultural trainings leading to more diverse and hearty harvests while community members in South East Asia are given the tools to operate a business. United across the world, these grantees are dedicated to long-term, lifestyle changes.
We wish our seven newest grantees big congratulations!
