Our Vision is to improve the quality of life of under-served populations globally and to allow a deprived community and children to thrive, learn, give back, and live in a better world.
OUR MISSIONOur Mission is to eliminate poverty, health disparities, and gender inequality and improve the overall health of underserved populations. That is no different from the desire of other human beings worldwide. 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 founded in 2014 to improve the lives of underserved, low-income, and minority populations. We understand that through empowerment and eliminating poverty, health disparities, and inequality; individuals can reach a state of optimal well-being.
