Seeding a community
We use the money we raise to invest in grassroots projects by people who seek to create a more compassionate world. Every day of the year, our network selects a new project that will receive $1,000 in seed funding. As that project blossoms, leaders can access capacity-building support, encouragement, and connectivity with others. Through these efforts, we seed a vibrant community of global changemakers who seek to spread compassion in the world for the benefit of all.
At TPP, we believe in people, so we invest in people.

Kenneth Oroma: Eduball
Far removed while deep in a rural village in Central Uganda, Kenneth Oroma – a then Teach for Uganda fellow – passed the time in the evenings by breaking out his ball for the few children that came to school that day. By the end of 2019, just three months into his fellowship, more than half of the students had already dropped out. This narrative plagues remote communities throughout Uganda and is what Kenneth set out to change.
He launched Eduball providing a safe and supportive environment through football to improve educational outcomes for rural children.
