Partnerships are fundamental to Global Partners’ mission, vision and approach.
By working in partnership with local communities from project conception to implementation, we are ensuring that our interventions are driven by local insight, needs, objectives and leadership.
Global Partners’ projects are community-driven but also evidence-based.
Every GPFD project is thoroughly researched before it is funded. Staff examine the extent to which each project builds the capacity of local people, meets local needs efficiently, and will remain effective over the long-term. Effectiveness is measured through partner feedback, systematic monitoring and quantitative impact evaluation. Evaluations are particularly critical to organizational learning, providing crucial data on the efficacy and sustainability of interventions in diverse local contexts.
Community engagement fosters long-term ownership.
Local, in-depth understanding of problems mean more viable solutions. Global Partners provides proactive project design, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation support to ensure sustainable practices are developed, used, and maintained over time.
The work of Global Partners represents a response to human distress, an acknowledgement of the global inter-connectedness of all people, and a dedication to improving the conditions and opportunities of those living in poverty.
Every Global Partners development project reiterates an overarching respect for human dignity regardless of circumstance. These projects provide people from the United States and East Africa with a way of articulating their compassion for one another in meaningful and tangible ways.
Global Partners is reliably open and honest in its internal and external affairs.
Global Partners maintains its commitment to integrity by ensuring that its actions, beliefs, and methods consistently reflect each of its core principles. Transparency and accountability are integral to the organization’s structure, including all financial, managerial, and program operations. Funding decisions are only made after multiple levels of review by our African partners, GPFD staff, the Project Committee, and the Board of Directors. The high quality of our relationships with donors and partners allows us to enjoy, nurture, and sustain this level of transparency in everything we do.
