It’s that time of year again when your mailbox gets filled with countless appeals for help and funding. I know a great many of those appeals end up in the recycle-bin so I want to thank you for making it this far and reading ours.With so many great organizations, I know it can be difficult to decide where to direct your year-end giving. We at Village Earth believe the most effective and efficient way to support the empowerment of marginalized peoples around the globe is to support and strengthen their own local and indigenous-run organizations. This is just as true for Native American Reservations, where local grassroot organizations often struggle to find the resources needed to design and carry-out their programs. Village Earth partners with innovative local and grassroots organizations across the Pine Ridge Reservation, connecting them with donors and resources that enhance their programs and increase their impact.
Village Earth has been working on the Pine Ridge Reservation for over a decade supporting the work of grassroots leaders and organizations. Village Earth connects you with these grassroots projects, our Global Affiliates. You share the vision, hopes and challenges of the people and communities we work with. Please take some time to learn about these innovative grassroots programs on Pine Ridge. We hope you will become as inspired as we are and decide to contribute to them.
Thank you! David Bartecchi
