With an incredible track record in shaping public policy and changing societies for the better, grassroots advocacy shows there is strength in numbers. Despite its success, grassroots organisations still face a number of challenges. Our United Action bundles the very best performing grassroots organisations around the world, so you can donate to several solutions at once.

Help us advocate for those who can't.

They create a regional community or civil organisation that is committed to ending the abuse of animals raised for food in their local area. They do this by campaigning, advocating and acting as a key voice for their region.
Because feminist activism works

The global movement for tribal peoples
Survival International gives tribal peoples a platform to speak to the world.

They lobby governments to recognise indigenous land rights and document and expose the atrocities committed against tribal people.
Powered by young people

They work with communities, young people and youth civil societies to adapt and evolve their ideas.
Help us support rural communities in leading educational projects
Educate. is a grassroots non-profit organisation that works to empower children in Honduras through community-driven initiatives focused on education.
