Our work is far more than the money. Our team spend time everyday listening, learning, guiding, and coaching community groups and leaders, mostly by phone, and whenever possible, through workshops and community conversations. This year, the team spent more than 304 hours in 3,490 phone conversations and embraced online channels by delivering 16 workshops, which reached more than 660 people.
