Cultivate International empowers local leaders to address issues of poverty and injustice through small- scale community projects. We exist to empower those who often are the recipients of charity at the hands of privileged community outsiders, and empower communities to take the reins of their own growth and fight against poverty and injustices. We believe that fighting poverty, injustice, and inequality is worth our efforts. We think that community insiders, not outsiders, are the best fighters. We’re about breaking the cycle of dependency. We’re about mobilizing community development project leaders because they are the best ones to lead charitable efforts.
