IMAGO Global Grassroots
IMAGO Global Grassroots works with grassroots organizations and Social Entrepreneurs to transform poverty into dignity and material well-being. We work around the world with outstanding organizations to enhance their strengths, build their capacity, and scale up their impact in a way that respects their unique context, attributes and evolution. Our vision is to create a market where organizations at the Base of the Pyramid get the support they need to scale up and that in the future there will be many more organizations like IMAGO working across the globe.
IMAGO works in 3 ways:
1. Co-creating a strategy to decide on priority areas of focus, while training organizations to develop their in-house capacity.
2. Building the research capacity in organizations to conduct their own research, diagnosis and M&E.
3. Assembling multi-disciplinary teams to address specific challenges that organizations face when scaling up.
