Empowering Sustainable Communities 

Bija is a 100% volunteer run, 501(c)3 non-profit organization


Bīja is a Sanskrit word that translates commonly to “seed.” Every sound in a mantra is a bija, so a bija is not a literal seed but rather a metaphorical consciousness seed. At Bija, our goal is to sow seeds of consciousness that will manifest to create the reality in which we want to live.


Bija is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of sustainable, community oriented projects.

We don’t need to change the whole world at once to make a difference. All we hope to do is impact one life, one community at a time… make a difference how and when we can.

One of our core operating philosophies is to be “more than sustainable,” leading us to focus on capacity building for small scale projects that have a ripple effect which positively impacts other areas. In this way, we hope that each individual project becomes a small piece in a much larger collaborative endeavor to enact global change.
