Meeting the Needs of Communities: This Week in Daily Giving

2016-02-24-1456314864-2407393-24129601753_bc2bde10cc_z.jpg

Building communities that thrive are based on the ability to meet the basic needs of its people. Grantees around the world are making it happen one step at a time through daily seed grants offered through The Pollination Project. From providing hygiene products, bathroom facilities, childcare and maternity care, health and fitness education and resources, and sustainable measures for the environment and animals -- our grantees make it their call to see the need and meet the need of global communities.
