Global Partners for Development?s core belief is that people can achieve the greatest success when they are recognized as capable, responsible, and committed. Partnership is the key to our work. Working closely with grassroots African leaders, Global Partners supports communities that have the drive and initiative to tackle the basic problems of chronic hunger and poverty, but lack access to training and outside resources. Our aim is not to just fix things today, but to help craft solutions that bring self-reliance and positive change for future generations. From the beginning, Global Partners has worked in direct partnership with African community leaders and organizations. Together, we take to the next level the adage, ?It?s better to teach a man to fish than to give him a fish.? Once a person learns to fish, their obligation is to teach someone else. This is the spirit of Global Partners in action. We work with village and organization leaders that want not only to improve their own lives, but also to create educated, healthy communities and thriving economies to spread benefits worldwide.

Reviews for Global Partners for Development

Rating: 5 stars  

It's my observation that Global Partners for Development's capacity to fulfill its mission is due to the people and partnerships that make the Global Partners' development model work. GPFD has been making a direct difference in East Africa since 1989. It started as a grass roots organization and continues to operate from that foundation. I contribute to GPFD because I can count on the funds going towards designated programs in education, water development, hygiene education, girls education scholarships and school and clinic construction. The funded projects have resulted in vastly improved health and well being of rural East African communities. I've been a board member since 1993 and have witnessed first hand the difference GPFD has been making in peoples' lives in East Africa. It's been a joy to serve.

This organization has been doing great work to end poverty and hunger since 1978. Global Partners does direct work in East Africa (Uganda, Kenya & Tanzania) in a partnership with local East Africans, The organization responds to real needs on the ground with efficient sustainable solutions impacting thousands. Water and education projects are two of the most common contribution to communities in East Africa. I've been involved as a volunteer and serving several terms on the board since 1999.

Highly effective in its work and respected by every international and grassroots African organization with which it has partnered for 25 years, Global Partners for Development has brought tangible and life changing results to hundreds of thousands of people in towns and remote communities throughout East Africa. Its signature achievements are all about results: translating donor funds directly to practical community projects to improve health, clean water, girls' education, and women's development; every project locally sourced and managed; empowering community leaders to ensure sustainability; partnerships based in transparency, integrity, respect. Travel with GPFD to see their projects in action, meet the villagers in charge, and prepare to be totally inspired.

My favorite Charity. GPFD is an extremely effective charity at getting funds for needed development projects to beneficiaries in East Africa. They work directly with community leaders and groups to identify what is actually desired and needed in each case. Expenses are razor thin and Daniel and Amy are the best people to work with. Lots of clean water projects and girls scholarships.
