Global Impact’s charity partners focus on the most pressing issues affecting people in need in the developing world. We partner with more than 100 organizations that are addressing these areas and actively working to establish change.
Water is essential to human life. Yet, worldwide, nearly one billion people lack access to safe water supplies. In fact, more people die each year from unsanitary water than from violence, including war. Global Impact and its partners build wells and piping systems, teach proper sanitation, and install water stations.
Countering disaster requires a coordinated and immediate response to deploy the most aid to the most victims. Global Impact and its partners provide aid in the form of shelter, food, water, funds, medical care and supplies, ensuring life-saving intervention that relieves and rebuilds families, communities and economies.
Poverty lies at the heart of mankind’s worst dilemmas including hunger, infant and childhood mortality, violence, social injustice and ecological destruction. Global Impact and its partners combat poverty and bring hope through training and finance initiatives that give populations in need the tools to help themselves.
Education is the great equalizer. For every year a child stays in school, his or her future earning potential increases 15 to 25 percent. Global Impact and its partners give access to safe schools, trained teachers, textbooks, supplies and tuition fees, helping to break the cruel cycle of poverty.
Women and Girls
Global poverty has decreased over the last three decades, yet the percentage of women living in poverty continues to rise. Sixty-six percent of women are illiterate. Global Impact and its partners recognize the role of women and girls in healthy economies and communities; they deploy combined resources to provide education, protection and rehabilitation from violence and exploitation, job training, healthcare, and a host of other services to women and girls around the world.
