Mission Statement

Our Mission is to eliminate poverty, health disparities, gender inequality, and improve the overall health of under-served populations.


Global Approach to Development strives to break the cycle of poverty. Below is how we work.
We conduct community outreach to the homeless.
We conduct a tailored lifestyle program that directly responds to behavior changes and healthy lifestyles. The long-term goal of the program is to develop an evidence-based healthy lifestyle intervention that can be translated in various community settings. This program is unique in that it provides physical activity and healthy eating interventions tailored to the cultural identity, specific needs, and preferential interests of communities.
For a country or a continent to develop it needs to improve the lives of its people. Improving the economy starts by reducing poverty. Many factors contribute to poverty. The lack of education and health are contributing factors to poverty. For a child to grow up with strong, positive value, and make positive contributions to society, he needs to be guided in developing the qualities of character that are valued by his family and by the community in which he lives. So we do have a common threat education of our children. Whether it is in a developing country or in America, Children’s education depends on adults and the community they live in.
We strive to provide potable drinking water to community in need.
