Grassroots innovations are home-grown solutions that have never been codified, applied elsewhere, nor taken to scale. These customized solutions are naturally frugal, grounded in a specific context, and might be more relevant, given their proximity to the problem. These solutions are often the result of innovation—people solving problems from the bottom up.

“In the drive for a fairer world, we have an—often-overlooked—asset: what 8 billion people around the world know about solving problems.”

Gina Lucarelli

On this platform you can find many early-stage, home-grown and often open-source grassroots solutions developed by people who are innovating in the margins to solve complex development challenges faced by their communities.
