Who 'We' Are

The CWS Incubation Lab was conceptualized in response to these changing demands. We strive to become experts at designing and implementing groundbreaking new projects, facilitating collaborative partnerships, and trying out new solutions to complex and deep-rooted problems. Our philosophy is that we can benefit both from the strength of our experience and our willingness to venture into new territory.

We hope to promote a culture of cooperation and creativity in the development field and the nonprofit sector as a whole, starting with CWS, while developing deep, personal working relationships.

CWS Incubation Lab’s mandate is to investigate, explore & experiment innovation initiatives. The intent is to be able to “inject” proven strategic initiatives into CWS, in order to further drive effectiveness & efficiencies.





Our Mission

We strive to develop innovative new projects that engage diverse communities in building a better world. We look for effective new vehicles for fundraising through better engagement from diverse audiences, leverage technology & forging new partnerships.

What We Do

At the core of our action is our CWS Global App. The very essence of this app is to help give people, like yourself, a chance to help others on your own terms. 

The way it works is simple, you walk, learn & share to earn points. As you earn points, you have the ability to redeem rewards in which we make a donation for you to support a variety of CWS projects around the world!

In our world, at this very moment, there are 821 million people who go to bed hungry every single day. This is an alarming number.


Way back in 1969, a few teens decided to walk and to raise funds to end hunger here in their own backyard as well as around the world. So our current campaign highlights the work of the CWS CROP Hunger Walks 800+ walks that went on all across the US in 2019. There were 100,000+ participants who joined in and together they raised over 7.6 million dollars.

How It Works

At the Incubation Lab, we are all about working through partnerships. Thanks to our generous partners and donors, we are able to provide the funds for every redeemed reward via our app. The more you walk and learn, the more rewards you can unlock meaning the more money that will be donated to CWS programs around the world to build strong communities in a world where there is enough for all.

All you have to do is walk. Are you ready to join us on this journey? Download the app directly from the top of this page, or learn more by clicking on OUR APP.
