WHO ARE WE?

We collaboratively develop international communities through a four-part, sequential, holistic, and sustainable process. Water is the beginning of making positive, lasting change to impoverished communities. After Water, Global Partners in Hope continues working to provide medical centers, sustainable energy and education & leadership training.

OUR WORK

1. CLEAN WATER

water_circleimageCLEAN WATER is foundational to the development of a community. Without reliable and safe access to clean drinking water, families are stuck in survival mode, spending many hours each day fetching water and making it potable. Countless families lack the resources to decontaminate their drinking water, which is why our first step in developing a community is to work with our in-country partners to build water wells.

2. MEDICAL CENTERS

3. SUSTAINABLE ENERGY

Gas generators are expensive and unreliable, so we’ve turned to sub-Saharan Africa’s most plentiful resource – the sun – to solve this problem. With the installation of a solar panel system, the centers have access to free, reliable energy to power their medical equipment.

4. EDUCATION & LEADERSHIP TRAINING

education_circleimageThe final step in the development of a community is to ensure the residents are EDUCATED about the value and functionality of their new resources. This education is facilitated by our in-country partners, and is ongoing from the moment the our shovels hit the dirt. In communities where these basic, physical needs are already met, the focus of GPiH shifts to developing community leaders. Our LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT courses equip local leaders to lead effectively, ethically, and sustainably
