Spark MicroGrants is a new model for helping communities put their ideas into action. Working in partnership with local facilitators, Spark helps guide communities through a structured proposal-development process and connects them to the funds to make it happen. It’s about enabling the community to define their own problem, design their own project and carry out the work for it – a simple idea that can start lasting change.
Volunteering as an advocate is a great way to get involved and contribute to these community-led development projects. Check out the main Spark MicroGrants site for more information about the organization and current grant projects.
