Hearts and Minds is a nonprofit that addresses the structural roots of extreme global poverty and inequality. We work to effectively help solve this challenge through public education and advocacy for reforms including foreign policy in the United States and other wealthy nations to: - Reform policies that subsidize the wealthy and hurt the poor. - Expand cost effective programs that already help millions of people. Together we’ll change the world, empowering the world’s poorest people and those in the wealthier nations to help make the world more sustainable, just, democratic, peaceful and beautiful now and for all future generations.
Founded in 1996, Hearts and Minds volunteers created an online source of inspiration and information on self help and volunteering. Our site promoted involvement in Poverty Alleviation, Human Rights, Equality, The Environment, Addictions and many other areas.As a nonprofit, nonpartisan, secular organization, our grassroots approach has allowed our volunteers to inspire, educate, advocate and promote change on initiatives and issues that affect millions of people on the planet.
We now focus on helping end extreme global poverty.
