Arizona Global Development Network

sustainably and responsibly collaborating to create international change


Who Are We?

Though Arizona is not recognized as a hub for international non-governmental organizations (INGOs), we have growing number of organizations that engage in international humanitarian work. As the 5th largest city in the country, Phoenix is emerging as a leader in technology and business innovation. It is time for Phoenix, and Arizona, to be recognized as a breeding ground for impactful INGOs. Our collective footprint remains unseen, but it is present and it is profound. Through collaboration and representation we can build the next up-and-coming industry in the Valley.

The Arizona Global Development Network(AGDN), founded by Esperança, is a source of support, inspiration, and resources for organizations and individuals that work in the area of international development and humanitarian aid. We acknowledge the strength of diversity, therefore encourage a wide range of organizations to join. Members will be open to sharing resources and best practices, innovative collaborations, and problem-solving.

Are you an international organization based in Arizona looking to better serve your communities? AGDN could be for you!
