Registered Charity Number: No.1148384
As a humanitarian aid and development agency, we work with unreached communities in some of the poorest countries in Asia, the Middle East and Africa, to give them a future and a hope. We respond to humanitarian crises, providing food, clothing, medicines and other support, as in Jordan and Lebanon where we have helped 1000s of refugees. We also promote sustainable development in often remote rural communities, focusing on food, water, health, education and income-generation, giving them the knowledge and skills needed to bring about lasting change, avoiding a dependency culture and maintaining dignity and self-respect. In collaboration with the UN, we also work with national governments without whose cooperation development cannot be fully sustainable. The Geneva Institute for Leadership and Public Policy exists to support such efforts, helping governments in their efforts to overcome obstacles and develop policies that will bring lasting benefit to their poorest communities.
