Our world is experiencing a cascade of natural and man-made disasters - floods, fires, earthquakes, wars, terrorism, oil spills - that leave physical, mental, emotional and economic wounds. Most relief efforts focus on physical survival—rescue, food, water, shelter and medical care. The untreated psychological effects of disasters can last for years and be transmitted to subsequent generations. High levels of poor mental health impair the ability of communities to function, recover and move towards reconciliation. Safe, simple, adaptable, low-cost mind-body interventions support individual and community-wide wellness, essential for healing and reconstruction.
Our mission is to catalyze women and girls as leaders of Conscious Social Change in their communities. Conscious Social Change is the intersection of mindfulness, leadership, and social entrepreneurship whereby individuals initiate change consciously, compassionately, and ethically. Global Grassroots incorporates BREATH-BODY-MIND™ into its women’s empowerment programs in Africa.
