CGI's focus on sustainable programs is wonderful - more organizations should focus on long term solutions like CGI does.
Also, the travel information CGI provides to those interested in missions overseas is invaluable! Thank you, CGI!
CGI makes a complex endeavor like serving globally a much simpler task. It provides information about trustworthy non-profit organizations and gives tips on how to travel economically. Recently, CGI was more than happy to let the organization I work with (ATI Mission Works) have real estate on it's website so that we could more easily collect donations. CGI is run by people who genuinely care about the world and all of us who live in it.
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.
The Center for Global Initiatives is a visionary organization meriting the support of all those who seek to Heal the World. CGI is trustworthy and has its eye on those world health issues that concern us all.
I have complete confidence in the integrity of the leadership of The Center for Global Initiatives and am fully inspired by their mission. CGI takes to heart the wisdom of our sages that "We may not be obligated to complete the task but we are never exempt from doing our part". CGI is a model of collaborative effort focused on the actionable, small changes that can truly transform the lives of others.
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.
The Center for Global Initiative is a comprehensive agency of worldwide impact. The CGI supports projects that address human suffering in all parts of the world through educations, assistance with locating resources and inspiration from mentors and leaders affliated with the program. At the core of caring professionals willing and able to help others with their projects is Dr. Chris Stout, a global leader. This is the first and main resource for the caring professional seeking to make a meaningful impact in the world ---the extent of services, resources and inspiration is vast and rich.
The CGI serves as a voice to what is and what more could be happening to help serve Global Health needs. They efficiently mobilize plans of care, fund raise and effectively implement & followup on programming. They active in causes and maintain the work they start while generating new needed programs. This is the best of the best programming in this area---very proud of my affliation to CGI.
CGI has been excellent in helping us network for support of our projects in Africa. It's quite easy for nonprofit organizations to fall into competitiveness and territoriality. CGI does the opposite; this is quite encouraging and energizing!
It has be one of the most satisfying experiences of my life to be able to work with the committed volunteers that make CGI's work possible.
CGI performs an invaluable service by offering to provide it's professional expertise and funding resources to help jump-start health care initiatives world wide. And most significantlt it does so with minimal administerative costs so the monies raised go directly to needy organizations.
CGI helps those who want to help by providing the tools and resources they need to make a difference in their communities.
Chris Stout's dedication and leadership have allowed the Center for Global Initiatives to achieve great things in spite of its small size.
We have been working in Eastern Africa to improve health in under-served areas of Kenya through medical education using technology. Our recent introduction to Dr. Stout and his involvement through the Center for Global Initiatives and the Humanitarian Intervention Consortium website bring significant new opportunities for the collaborations that are critical to solving complex problems with limited resources.
I believe the Center for Global initiatives provides critical insights toward ending major global Healtg issues.
The Center for Global Initiatives does fantastic work and uses the highly skilled friends of Chris Stout's to expand the reach of the Center. I highly recommend supporting his work!
The Center for Global Initiatives is doing very innovative work. It has implemented and developed programs that have changed people's lives -- on several continents.
Solid organization. Creative approach. Broad reach. Spot on commitment where it is needed. I have known Dr Stout for over 30 years and this is his work and his life. Do not miss an opportunity to get involved where it will made a difference. My hat is off to you Chris.
I've known Chris for many years as a collegue and friend to many professionals who work in the field of mental health. A few years ago both of my parents passed and I was interested in donating a modest sum to a worthwhile cause in their name. CGI helped me to get in contact with a school/health clinic in Tanzania that was in dire need of medical supplies and services. Dozens of children benefited from the contribution...I was very appreciative knowing that my donation was going directly to people in need. Chris has made if possible for many people to connect directly with people helping people. A gentleman. A scholar... and a wonderful human being. Keep up the good work!
