The name Global Approach to Development came about the fact that we strive to address all the aspect of human life to reduce poverty and improve health.
Global Approach to Development (GAD) develops an evidence-based lifestyle intervention tailored to vulnerable populations with the goal of reducing identified health disparities, improving health, and increasing access to care.
Our Vision is to improve the quality of life of under-served populations globally; to give a deprived community and children the opportunity to thrive, to learn, to give back and to live in a better world.
Our children are our future and we must take responsibility to educate them.
In this picture, you are looking at our future, who is excited and do not want to stop. You are looking at a structure that the winds of nature can blow down. You are looking at a dilapidated building. An environment that is unclean, unsafe, a ground that is un-cleaned. GAD decided to step in and improve children’s education. We couldn’t sit back and look these children learning in an unclean and unsafe environment. We decided to rebuild the school.
People need people. People need to get together and embrace the dream and the nurturing of our future which is our children.
Our children, young adults even our adults, they are our future, and we cannot sit back and hope. If we do that and do nothing, it is false hope. Now it is our opportunity, there could come a time actually, that someone may want to give and there will be no way to give, no access to give away what they have. Now it’s your time.
It is a global problem, with our education, unemployment, illness, all the things that are happening in America, in developed countries are happening in a dynamic way in under-developed countries and I am speaking to you, saying let’s get together and build a future for our children, for our adults so that we can be strong together and thrive together. Let’s come together as a nation and continent. I want to invite you to participate.
