Help a Hero

Grassroots Accelerator

The Grassroots Accelerator supports key long-term volunteers who ensure continuity and growth in humanitarian projects. While most volunteers only stay for about a week, key long-term volunteers effectively coordinate the shortstay volunteers and optimize project impact.
