Mission Statement

Global Family Village (GFV) is dedicated to improving the lives and outcomes of orphaned and vulnerable children. GFV empowers communities to transform existing orphanages into family based homes supported by community-specific programs using a sustainable, replicable approach.

Description

Global Family Village (GFV) envisions a permanent systemic change within the child welfare system; allowing all disenfranchised children in Nepal the opportunity to grow up in a home with a stable family unit including siblings, surrogate parent caregivers and strong community ties.

GFV facilitates change from institutional orphan care to family-centered, community-based homes through limited-time partnerships with existing orphanages and local community stakeholders. This includes:

  • Providing sufficient training and financial support for families to ensure long-term success of the children.
  • Creating a scalable, repeatable model that could be transferred to other Nepal communities and countries where there is a need and desire to implement.
  • Raising sufficient funds through donations to Global Family Village Inc. in order to actualize the organizational Mission and Goals.

I enjoyed working with Freema Davis, the founder of the organization. She is very dynamic and easy to work with. The stories of the organization for Social Media are touching and engaging. The only problem as a volunteer is the pace was a bit slow considering they are in Nepal and much of the information and work is via Sype, email and some phone contact. Other than this, it was a great experience. I volunteered for one year.
