Deep Roots is a network of individuals, businesses and organisations.  We encourage individuals to be socially responsible for where they come from or their communities of interest.  We do this by encouraging and facilitating them to set up their own projects whilst as a community we support these projects through the various resources available as a group. 

The Deep Roots Concept, in particular, is about doing things for free!  To do this we as a team are 100% volunteers (thus we operate at near zero cost base), our network is a group of individuals and organisations that support Deep Roots projects by contributing knowledge, equipment, volunteering to take on tasks that will enable the projects to progress.  Whilst we sometimes raise funds for certain projects we do not rely on funding as a primary source for Deep Roots projects.  Each entity on the network contributes in their area of expertise and in theory this means that they have not gone out of their way to make a difference rather by contributing little and working in cooperation they have benefited a community in need.  This also means that funds raised via the Deep Roots projects goes directly to beneficiaries.

To further enhance the process we encourage individuals to write up about their project and experience and this is published thus further enhancing the knowledge base.  Deep Roots is a knowledge exchange network.  With individuals and groups writing up and sharing lessons learnt from their projects other folks around the world are able to tap into this and consider running something similar for their own community of interest. 

We are also member-driven and educate our members by providing free training courses to enable them to have the skills required to run their projects effectively.  This way our members emerge from projects not only satisfied from contributing to their communities but also confident in their newly acquired skills that they are able to use elsewhere. 

To ensure sustainability of our projects we have set up a sub-network called Grace Roots.  The concept of Grace Roots is where possible to encourage participation of churches local to the area of benefit to join and support projects within that region.  This way when a Deep Roots member has completed their project they can hand over progress updates and reviews to such organisations so that the effected change is long-term.

We encourage you to spend time on the website learning more about us and we would love to hear from you.  Our projects are focused on poverty relief, education and sustainable development.  Our membership is free and we would love you to join us on this journey.
