Program Overview

Our Uganda and Kenya team is led by a team of local changemakers who are also Pollination Project grantees themselves.

Their goal is to reach geographically and technologically marginalized grant applicants (with no internet access, no computer skills and limited English). They look for projects that do not have access to funding from other international foundations. The team establishes culturally-relevant processes and procedures that lead to more long term and overall impact.
