Too often women, Indigenous Peoples, youth, and poor communities are undervalued and dismissed in ways that limit their access to financial resources and possibilities.

At Thousand Currents, we trust that people have an inherently nuanced understanding of their own context and lived experiences. That's why we are committed to redefining
partnership alongside leaders from the Global South.

So what does redefined partnership look like?

To Thousand Currents, it looks like…

...supporting our partners for the long-term and sticking with them through times of change, such as when Surplus People Project (SPP) in South Africa underwent a leadership transition that other funders could have seen as a "crisis."

...our senior partners like Desarrollo Económico y Social de los Mexicanos Indígnenas (DESMI) teaching U.S. philanthropists what it means to tackle the root causes of poverty at the Thousand Currents Academy. flexible, no-strings-attached funding and never dictating what activities and strategies our partners use, freeing them up to listen closely to their communities - especially important in times of disaster and climate change.

...making space for more authentic conversations that lead to strategies for change with partners from Nepal:   

"In general, when I've gone to Nepal, we spend the majority of our meetings talking about what's not going well, things [our partners] worry about, things they want help with. And we spend a lot of time strategizing ultimately about how to get more resources their way."

At Thousand Currents, we are redefining partnership in order to share power with our partners. It’s how we stand in solidarity with them.

partnerships - an expression of love in action - are unlocking and exchanging grassroots brilliance!
