Community Development places the community at the heart of initiatives to alleviate poverty. Development promotes resilient and empowered communities that are working to lift themselves out of poverty. GPM provides these communities with the resources they need to break the cycle of poverty.
GPM recognizes that communities have their own resources and ability to determine what is best for their futures, however what they often lack is the resources to actualize the initiatives they want and need to change their reality and create a better future. This is exactly where GPM steps in, together with communities, we determine a plan of action to implement their initiatives and empower them to create change. The vast majority of our staff are from the communities where we work, and they have a vital role in determining the implementation of GPM's projects. Communities determine their needs and together we determine a plan of action to tackle these needs and break the cycle of poverty.
