LONGITUDE is a start-up non-profit organization that empowers visionary leaders of grassroots educational and human rights initiatives in developing countries by providing much needed resources, volunteers, and support services. Longitude facilitates tailor-made volunteer opportunities with its foreign partners and raises funds, and provides material and programmatic support for these struggling NGOs. Currently, Longitude is aiding a community secretarial school in Ghana, and a human rights organization in Andhra Pradesh, India that assists members of India’s lowest caste. Longitude is fueled by the idea that fostering grassroots community involvement will empower not only local leaders but also the communities in which they work.
