It's by focusing on creating prosperity that you can actually fix poverty.
Guided by our Philosophy, “Give a Man a Fish and you will feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” the ultimate aim of GGI Works is to create full employment across the communities we empower.
A sustainable jobs initiative, it will reduce entitlements, instead focusing on putting people into full-time work. GIFT works with women from poor communities to develop a skill set which is then used to form a self-sustainable business, so these women can earn a respectful living income and gain their independence from foreign aid/ donations.
With each new place we add to GGI Works, we are one step closer to Ending Global Poverty.
Thanks to microfinance and mentorship from supporters like you, women who once lived on the fringes of survival now own self sustaining small businesses—running grocery stores, sewing, creating handcrafts, and more. They’re making a respectful income to feed, clothe, shelter and educate their children. And as loans are repaid, funds are used to provide loans for other women. Your gift keeps on giving, and giving.
