We take an innovative approach to fighting poverty whereby every community development process begins with local vision and resources. Grants are made available later on, once communities have shown the ability to mobilize for change and initiate their own development processes.
Working with our local partners, we train and assist these vulnerable communities to identify their shared vision and assets. By focusing on assets internal to the community (social, material, cognitive, physical, spiritual, financial), we are able to achieve sustainable development outcomes that are envisioned and empowered by the local community itself.
We do this primarily by:
5N2 is committed to financial integrity and transparent stewardship of the resources entrusted to us. We believe in accountability and commitment to our partners both in reporting and appropriate allocation of financial contributions.
Your funding of 5N2 allows us to engage some of the world’s most vulnerable communities with a radical approach to fighting poverty.
By training, coaching and guiding communities to mobilize their own vision and assets, they are able to achieve developmental outcomes with no external inputs. Because all our administrative costs are generously paid for, the entirety of your donation will go directly to our work in the field.
