Our Vision



Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change –

across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.


To realize this vision, we set four priorities that will direct our work over the next five years:

Increase our impact
Expand our reach
Enhance participant engagement
Increase our ability to adapt


We envision a world where the basic needs of every person are met. We envision a world where the only limits on what every man, woman, and child can accomplish are their own imaginations.  Mothers and their children grow stronger; everyone can read; war and disease are no more. We envision a world where people engage in peaceful dialogue, creative thinking, modern ingenuity, healthy curiosity, and sincere appreciation for the uniqueness of each person and each culture.
