GVI has 3 clear objectives against which we measure our success:
Awareness: To increase cultural understanding and awareness of global issues within our alumni
Impact: To make long term, sustainable contributions towards key global and local issues
Empowerment: To equip our alumni with the knowledge and ability to further contribute towards key global and local issues
We consider our alumni to be all people we come into contact with, be they donors, fundraisers, volunteers, interns, local partner staff or local community members we work with.
The key local and global issues line up closely with the issues identified by international conservation and community development groups, specifically with the UN Sustainable Development Goals:
- Hunger and Poverty
- Primary Education
- Gender Equality
- Child Health
- Maternal Health
- Major Disease Awareness
- Environmental Sustainability
- Global Partnerships
Each one of our operational hubs around the world focuses upon the key global issues considered to be local priorities and as requested by our local partners and communities.
