Who We Are

Roots of Development is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that supports and advocates for a more sustainable approach to development around the world.

We believe in a world in which the very communities living in poverty are the ones leading the fight against it; a world in which impoverished communities decide their own future and manage their own development.

“Most organizations have stories about projects they have done for a community.
Roots of Development’s approach to development is different. We help communities implement their own projects and lead their own development.”

– Chad W Bissonnette, Executive Director and Co-Founder
