Our goal is to create inspired, innovative & inclusive communities that are sustainable economically, socially and environmentally, and to develop platforms for the full participation of women, girls and youth locally and globally.
Our primary focus is building financially inclusive communities, by helping hard-working individuals develop their existing skills into profitable, self-sustaining small businesses, in a nurturing, loving and supportive environment.
To attain this goal, P4D partners with existing community organizations. Instead of working in silos, P4D collaborates with other effective nonprofits to identify as well as work with qualified social entrepreneurs, starting in the Maryland region. With our partner organizations, P4D leverages local and global connections and provides the expertise to enable them to maximize their impact, increase employment and use resources sustainably with dignity.
