The Buen Vivir Fund is the collective response of Thousand Currents and our partners to the need for a truly transformative approach to impact investing. Together, we are designing forms of investment that support grassroots economic initiatives to build wealth, community power, and wellbeing.
The Buen Vivir Fund seeks to promote financial models and practices that support communities’ holistic wellbeing, as opposed to focusing solely on maximizing individuals’ capital accumulation.
Rather than those with the money imposing terms, the Buen Vivir Fund investment model identifies lending practices developed by grassroots groups themselves that are already proving effective on the ground. Together, the Buen Vivir Fund members uplift and apply these practices to the level of a global investment fund
Thousand Currents envisions a world where humanity thrives as a creative force that is reciprocal and interdependent with nature, and creates loving, equitable and just societies. While women, youth, and Indigenous Peoples contribute least to large-scale, global problems like climate change, inequality, poverty, and broken food systems, they often are the most impacted by them. However, with enough support and resources, everyday people are shaping proven and powerful local solutions to our shared and urgent global challenges.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
