Seeds: Our Blog

Welcome to our blog! We use it to tell our grantees’ stories and to share more about what we are learning here at The Pollination Project.

A Safe Haven

A significant element for creating global change is building safe havens for people to gather. Whether it is a physical space or  a digital platform, building an environment for communities to grow, learn and reclaim their well-being is essential for long term success and independence. TPP grantees are passionate about ensuring their communities are heard and have a welcoming platform to voice their needs, share their stories and cultivate meaningful relationships with those around them. Learn how TPP grantees face global issues and transform society through intimate [...]

Continuous Commitment

TPP grantees portray a version of all of us that we can’t give up on. They are able to vision hold for individuals and communities who have dreams, small or grand that move the needle forward. When life is uncertain, anything is possible. It takes courage, love and consistency to be able to see the sun through the clouds. This group of grantees see the possibilities and illuminate communities towards environmental conservation, youth leadership and healthy living. Their day to day efforts will lead to a loud [...]

Grand Visions

Being a changemaker goes beyond the successful execution of a community based project. TPP grantees are visionaries because they can authentically spread their positive perception to others. In order to reimagine the future and leave strong legacies, TPP grantees do not accept societal norms or circumstances that limit someone's potential. From uplifting generations of women and shining light on taboos that no longer serve us, this group of grantees encourage us all.

Sustain and Restore

Strengthening our connection to Earth has the ability to ignite our inner leadership, spirituality, and foster community. All around the world, TPP grantees utilize the richness of what nature has bestowed on us to transform food systems, build economic stability and save native plants from extinction. Creating solutions to uplevel the lives of others involves outside resources, but we can not forget the gifts that already exist around us. TPP grantees execute true sustainability by creating and restoring what is already provided and building systems from there. [...]

Nourishing Our Youth

Do you remember the first time you were inspired as a child? Did you have people in your life to advocate for your health, education and overall wellbeing? As children, our self confidence and life perspective is highly impressionable. TPP grantees understand the need and value to equip youth with the tools and emotional support they need to explore the world through curious eyes, high self esteem and community driven goals. These youth driven projects prove there is no limit to how we can engage our younger [...]

Positive Perception

How do you identify your individual greatness? Although this can be discovered on one’s own, at TPP, we believe inner transformation is best discovered through communal experience with others. Recognizing the beauty and power in someone else mirrors the power that lies within us. This powerful cycle is a boundless act that never stops going. Read how the grantee projects below spread and encourage positive perception and group transformation.

Environmental Champions

The way TPP grantees engage with our planet is astounding and ever evolving. From organic farming, gardening, rain water harvesting and clean water initiatives, there are infinite ways to heal and develop a community. Although each project below is passionately created in a different region, all grantees are collectively striving to strengthen their community, and share knowledge and practices that preserve the planet. Katia, Aline, Karina – Projeto TransformAção CSEUR (TransformAction CSEUR) TransformAction CSEUR is project developed by Aonde Environmental Institute and its [...]

Spreading Magnificence

There are moments in life when our problems feel bigger than our wins. TPP grantees understand that the answer is not hoping the situation disappears, but to hold less faith in the problem and more appreciation in the communities that make life worth living for. This week’s TPP grantees empower their communities with knowledge and group experiences to transform their circumstances into new realities. Rameshwar Fundipalle & Amol Umbarje – Transforming The Cottage School Into Digital School Rameshwar Fundipalle’s project “Transforming the Cottage [...]

Existing Magnetism

TPP grantees generate change by utilizing the resources, knowledge and cultural traditions that already exist in communities around the world. They see the beauty in the land and talent within people that can be used to propel communities to new heights. Through wildlife conservation, sacred arts, and educating locals with the excellence that exists in their culture, the TPP grantee projects in this week’s blog empower individuals from within. Thank you for following their journey! Hana Ma, Yoshie Lewis, Gogee Self – No [...]

Renewable Leadership

TPP grantees continuously demonstrate that life struggles can transform into ongoing progression when we utilize the healing powers of our planet, provide people with sustainable hygienic resources, and bring communities back to nature. From community gardens to environmentally focused educational platforms, TPP grantees equip groups and individuals with the knowledge and tools to gain economic stability, restore creative thinking, and to connect with the planet every step of the way.
