Shhhh! How Listening Makes the Loudest Impact

Wednesday, November 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm • Organized By Unbound
1722 E 17th Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64108


After distributing thousands of dollars in pilot grants for sustainable development projects around the world with limited success, employees from Unbound will share how they changed their approach to social entrepreneurship: moving away from leaders of institutions delivering grants for projects thousands of miles away in favor of a community-based approach that prioritizes the proposed solutions of those who are closest to the need. Find out what happens when you start listening to the mom raising a family on a few dollars a day in Costa Rica instead of the grant writer Kansas City.
