Lisle International broadens global awareness and cultural understanding through world-wide projects which integrate learning with experience. Lisle is a unique non-profit organization that funds small development projects around the world through its Global Seed Fund. Its distinctiveness comes from how it melds experiential cross-cultural learning with the work itself, placing equal emphasis on relationships and development funding.

Lisle has been ahead of the curve since its inception in 1936, recognizing the essential value of group process interaction in promoting global understanding and sustainable growth at every level, from the individual to nation. These relationships foster a network of people around the world which increases creativity and growth; thus the funding, by itself, is two-dimensional: process and outcomes. Most organizations emphasize one or the other, few do both, and even fewer do so with the commitment and success of Lisle.
