Initiatives of Change grew out of the work of one man's calling to bridge the worlds' divides through trustbuilding and reconcilliation. Following World War II, American Lutheran minister Frank Buchman implored leaders in Europe to move towards 'moral and spiritual re-armament' as a way to build a 'hate-free, fear-free, greed-free world'. This led to the creation of Intiatives of Change and the development of our mission: to inspire, equip, and connect people to address world needs, starting with the themselves.

Eighty years later, Initiatives of Change has sought to stay true to Buchmans' belief that transformation of society begins within the individual. Initiatives of Change (International) is largely staffed by remote based volunteers; individuals who freely give their time and talents to support the administrative and communication needs of country specfic chapters. This allows each chapter to dedicate their time to facilitating critical programs in areas of need. We would love to give our tireless volunteers the opportunity to meet face to face with the teams that they collaborate with!

Our annual gathering every year takes place in Caux, Switzerland at the same time as the Caux Forum; one of our most widely known sequence of conferences and programs. Your contribution will to allow our small team of editors, webmasters, and artists to (finally!) meet in person and understand how to better serve the teams across our global network. Our digitally connected environment may make global communication more accessible than ever, but being able to connect in person adds a richness to communication that can't be captured by Instagram. Help our volunteers by giving them this incredible opportunity for person-to-person connection!
