The Center for Global Initiatives takes likeminded individuals from various fields and brings them together for one purpose - improving the healthcare of the world.
True volunteerism is a commitment and passion to the mission of service to others and that is Chris Stout and CGI.
Top integrity, absolute competence and no nonsense! It is one of the most truly altruistic things going today!
Global Initiative is tireless in it's efforts to promote healing services in some of the most needy regions of the world, and is an exemplar of the new model of collaboration and information sharing with other NGOs to promote a more concerted response to humanitarian crises.
I have followed the commitment and humanitarian work of Dr. Chris Stout and CGI for a number of years, and have always been impressed and deeply appreciative of the hands-on, practical benefit it has obviously brought to communities in great need, and particularly to those with limited or in some cases no options. The compassion that underlies these efforts is palatable. This is the caliber of healing work - by dedicated and highly effective professionals directing their expertise toward improving the human condition one concrete step at a time - that deserves acknowledgment and support whenever the opportunity arises.
great goals and purpose for this organization!!!!!
CGI provides such a great service to the humanitarian aid sector! Way to go!
Great organization! I would recommend CGI as a great source of support for anyone, novice or veteran, with a heart for meaningful non-profit work!
Given the plethora of global humanitarian issues that are perhaps best addressed in a collaborative manner, "Tools for Change" is an excellent resource and platform to help achieve this. I give it, and the Center for Global Initiatives, a five-star rating! - Victor Olusegun Adeniji
Dr. Stout and CGI exemplify the dedication and persistence needed for a humanitarian transformation away from violence, conflict, and the widespread exploitation of our most vulnerable populations and ecosystems.
The Center for Global Initiatives has been very educational and a useful tool as a budding professional. I can only hope that my future contributions can showcase how much I have learned. This non profit is an inspiration that I can do more and a small act can play a role in a great change. Keep up the great work!
Truly a great idea and execution to help make this world a better place. CGI joins people to collaborate and unite in tackling the issues we all face on a world wide basis. I recently joined the CGI after seeing their great initiatives with Mission Works and their work to help spread excellent healthcare. I look forward to working with them in the future.
CGI helps nascent nonprofits like mine take off and Dr Chris Stout is a dear and very special colleague who has unhesitatingly provided counsel and in-depth information about running a good nonprofit. Their work has touched millions!
Review is as much based on Dr. Chris Stout as the center, itself. My personal use of the Center is for information.
The programs highlighted, and resources available are both timely and insightful. When I want to look further into what is happening in global health, this is the first place I come to network resources with people, and to find accurate information on what is happening in specific areas regarding the health issues they are facing.
Much of what comes across my news feed is highly processed by the various media channels, or carries a lot of political baggage for the more mainstream outlets, which puts layers in between donors and the effectiveness of programs. CGI does a lot to cut through these filters, focusing on the most urgent needs, and most effective responses for the individuals we are interested in helping.
Dr. Chris Stout has a passion for his mission like no other Executive Director I have worked with. He is also a master connector and has a knack to connect those in need with the perfect individual who wants and is able to give. His has helped so many, and this is only the tip of the iceberg!
Excellent organization that assists in bettering healthcare on a global level through awareness, empowerment, and educated efforts. Dr. Chris Stout is not only an admirable professional with the best of intentions, but is also willing to share his incredible expertise and extensive experience with students who seek to make a global difference as well.
I have the utmost respect for the leadership of CGI. They are a class act. Their clear mission, communications and organizational transparency are at a standard that all organizations- non-profit or not should aspire to.
The newsletter that keeps me aware of all the work CGI has done in the past and is doing currently is available, easy to understand and gives me the opportunity to donate when funds are available to a project that interests me. I have full support of this group's sincerity, honesty and hard work!
As one who works in the field of HIV/AIDS counseling research, I have found CGI to be most helpful. They have provided useful contacts, interactions with other professionals, and valuable information.
Timely informaton that is well summarized and much needed.
Organizations providing help often have their own needs which mostly are rarely met. This organization provides help, assistance and encouragement to other organizations that provide help in remote places.
