Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Global Team for Local Initiatives is dedicated to helping people help themselves for sustainable change.
Working closely with tribal elders, we help implement sustainable development projects for long term survival and income generating activities for immediate relief.
We are currently working with the 66,000 member Hamar Tribe located in remote SW Ethiopia. Through projects in water,health,education, care of abandoned children and income generation, we are helping this ancient tribe, affected by drought and disease, gain the skills they need for continued survival.
1. We live with and learn from the community before doing any programs.
2. We address water, health, education and livelihood issues holistically because they are inextricably linked. (Sustainable clean water, for example, requires new sanitary behaviors, knowing how to repair the well, earning potenial for buying spare parts and literacy skills for running a business.)
3. We motivate the community by helping them identify their own problems and develop practical soluntions.
4. We guage our effectiveness by measuring the long term impact of our programs on beneficiaries' lives instead of measuring the volume of products and services delivered.
