Who are we?
Global Development Group USA is an Organization Exempt From Income Tax with 501(c)(3) status carrying out humanitarian projects with approved partners and providing aid to relieve poverty. This status was approved and a tax exempt number was issued March 21, 2007.
Global Development Group USA is also a Public Charity. A Public Charity brings particular strengths to the aid program. They facilitate public support and voluntary contributions for aid; they often have strong links with community groups in developing countries and they often work in areas where government-to-government aid is not possible. They also have particular expertise in providing assistance to meet people’s basic needs, particularly in emergency situations where quick and flexible responses are required. Global Development Group USA and its overseas partners work in areas of specialist relief and Humanitarian Aid not covered by some of the larger NGO’s.

We work towards a world where people live free of poverty with the opportunity and the ability to shape their own lives.
Global Development Group exists to relieve poverty in a tangible way and provide long-term solutions through the delivery of quality aid and development projects together with our partners around the world.
- Partnership – a strong, mutual, working relationship is important to us. We aim to work at building and improving relationship so we can accomplish more in the world together.
- Integrity, trust and loyalty – these qualities are essential to any successful and lasting relationship or project.
- Quality – we believe in continually improving all project operations, administration and management and full accountability. We place a strong emphasis on project monitoring and evaluation which is having a significant, long-term impact in the countries where we work.
- Passion –we value passionate desire to make a difference. It drives us on to accomplish something great even when we grow weary.
- Teamwork – as with partnership, recognizing and realizing the gifts and abilities of others helps us achieve more.
‘Synergy’ is at the heart of our engagement with our partners, meaning simply that ‘we accomplish more together’. We carefully select and approve our partners, to assist in design, support, implementation, monitoring, reporting and evaluation of our projects. We have a small-scale, grassroots approach to our development projects. In consultation with the local beneficiary community, we seek to ‘start where they are at’, and empower the local community to utilise their existing resources, local knowledge, skills and materials. We seek to help build their capacity for understanding, managing and becoming responsible for the development activities as they become more sustainable.
