Often times the most difficult part of starting or building a project is the getting over the feeling of being powerless to affect change. Apart from the direct financial support that the Pollination Project has given me, the TPP impact grant represented a larger feeling of being empowered to affect change.

The realm of develop is often times reserved for the experts but in reality any truly meaningful change starts with an individual and a belief in helping foster change. Receiving a TPP grant for our community development work in Mozambique validates the idea that at the heart of development is our individual human values to create a better future. Just as Gandhi suggest so many years ago, the TPP impact grant has helped me to be the change I want to see!
