Our Vision is to improve the quality of life of under-served populations globally and to give a deprived community and children the opportunity to thrive, to learn, to give back and to live in a better world.
Our Mission is to eliminate poverty, health disparities, gender inequality, and improve the overall health of underserved populations. That’s no difference than the desire of other human beings around the world. We have a common problem, not only in underserved countries but also in developed countries. We have the same global threats to our development, education, economy, and health.
Global Approach to Development is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in 2014 to improving the lives of underserved, low-income, and minority populations. We understand that through empowerment and the elimination of poverty, health disparities, and inequality, individuals can reach a state of optimal well-being.

We are all global and all God’s children. We can be available for God to use us in his omnipresence. What we need in Africa, we need it in America. We might as well come together with the same mind and the same urgency to help these kids that are smart and have dreams, vision of a better life.
