GRANTED EVERY DAY
COUNTRIES ACROSS THE GLOBE
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.

Fernando Jaúregui: New Voices, New Horizons
Fernando Jaúregui is a Venezuelan news and documentary producer, journalist, and environmental advocate. A decade ago, he established Ecopracticas, a successful campaign dedicated to communicating, inspiring, and motivating individuals to protect and restore the environment.
Recently, he and his wife launched “New Voices, New Horizons” to empower and encourage young people to engage in environmental initiatives that benefit their communities. Through this project, they will identify and support four youth-led initiatives with community-based activities centered around sustainability and environmental consciousness. Guided by Fernando, these young environmentalists will develop technical and narrative scripts to produce a series of impactful media content.
“I can not tell you the feeling of being selected. Beyond the grant, it is amazing to have been chosen over who knows how many great projects. It is an immense joy to know that TPP noticed us and thought that we are doing a good job. It also makes us more committed to fulfill every expectation.”
