Our Story

Global Alliance for Africa transforms the lives of orphans and vulnerable children affected by the AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa by partnering with grassroots organizations to design and implement innovative economic development programs that enable families and communities to become self-sufficient.

Our focus on economic opportunity ensures a brighter future for the poorest and most vulnerable in Africa and provides a solution to the cycle of poverty.

Empowerment & Self-Reliance

an economically thriving community is only as strong as the individuals within it.

 

Global Alliance provides educational resources, including vocational training and classes on small business entrepreneurship, as well as psycho-social support through our innovative Art Therapy Program.  With this strong foundation, these empowered, independent and confident individuals seize upon opportunities available through our micro-finance programs.  They learn to build and operate their own businesses, the profits of which not only provide a sustainable income to their families but also promote economic development within and between communities.  The ultimate goal is for these communities to build and experience long-term financial stability.

Sustainability

future generations will be able to break out of the cycle of poverty.

 

Our programs increase incomes in a sustainable way allowing families to take care of the daily needs of their children, as well as orphans in their care. When families meet children’s basic needs and increase their education, future generations will be able to break out of the cycle of poverty. Our innovative method works because Global Alliance considers the long-range impact of its programs. Our commitment to these families and communities does not end with the training or funding we provide; we work with these communities to ensure long-term success and financial stability.

Accountability

What sets Global Alliance apart is the grassroots relationships developed with each of our African partners.  Ongoing mentoring allows us to ensure that the needs of the families and communities are being met.

Innovative Solutions

We value innovative ideas and technologies as an important way to grow new businesses.  We look to our African partners as well as the individuals we serve for creative solutions to their needs.
