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.

Andre Velasquez: Habitable
Andre Velasquez is a Peruvian architect. In 2020, Andre and a group of professionals decided to fund Habitable, a transdisciplinary non-profit association meant to accompany processes of social production of habitat through the use of participatory methodologies and popular education techniques. The latest Habitable project is in the José Carlos Mariátegui Human Settlement. Working along the community organization 10 de Julio, Habitable will build a collective space where they will install a common kitchen and they will be able to hold meetings, receive training workshops, art and reinforcement classes for children, store tools and materials and even use it for personal hygiene.
“Thanks to everyone at TPP from our organizations and from the community who are really excited because without you this project couldn’t be a reality. You will always have a place in our heart and in the community’s heart because you are a part of this dream.”
