If 2020 taught us anything, it is the need to build more resilient communities.

At Atma, we envision a world where everyone – regardless of location, age, race, or gender – is resilient to pandemics, climate change, and social conflict. As an Atma ally, we know you believe in this vision as much as we do!

This year has the potential to be a transformative year. We need to expand our impact beyond the current challenges, because the reality is – there will be new challenges.

How can we continue to adapt to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic? How can we empower vulnerable communities affected by climate change to lead the change they most need? How can we use technology as a tool for good?

We will also see new opportunities for change, new leaders emerging at the community level, and new examples of hope for a better future.

On January 18, in the United States, we celebrated the life and vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King reminds us that “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

There is no greater power than the power of people helping people.

It is what we see every day, in communities across Indonesia and Puerto Rico. Every day people who are inspiring, imagining, and initiating change in their communities are the true leaders. It is a privilege to support their impact.

There is so much more work to do.

We are excited to announce that we will be launching a new AtmaGo in 2021 to bring community resilience projects, led by local people for the benefit of local people, to the forefront. We are making it easier than ever for Community Leaders to track and share their impact, engage and expand their community, and generate more support for their work.

Stay tuned to continue with us on this journey!
