Building enduring solutions to social and economic problems takes more than shoring up internal capacity to deliver programs - it requires that we transform the system around us by locating our development efforts in a wider ecosystem of actors and initiatives. When we bridge boundaries and work with others we achieve greater levels of change than we could alone. Root Change programs focus on supporting social innovators, local leaders and forward thinking development agencies to operate more effectively within the larger, dynamic ecosystem of competing institutions and programs.
Through our programs and social ventures, we identify barriers to development and respond by advancing pattern-breaking opportunities. Our growing global network of Scouts are working to unearth many of these innovative social enterprises and practices, building the foundation from which to link and leverage critical resources and innovation for large scale social impact.
