About

In Southern Africa, the word fito (from the Sesotho language) means "joining diverse pieces or people to make one powerful effort".

The word also has many meanings in other languages: in the native Kenyan Dholuo it refers to the rods that reinforce traditional huts, while in ancient Greek it means "to generate or grow".

 

We are strong advocates for networks – collectives of people and groups where deep human relationship are at the core – as the incredible, invisible forces with the potential to shape and change our world.

Thousands of communities and networks exist around the globe to create social change. Yet despite their great potential, they are remarkably under-funded, highly disconnected, and terribly misunderstood for the impact they achieve.

Our aim is to change that.
