As a non-profit organization we rely on public support and volunteer actions. We are very much grateful to all our active volunteers who contribute their time, knowledge, passion, good will, and generous hearts and care to battle social problems including illiteracy, poverty, emergencies and many other cases.
Currently we need world-wide volunteers to generate in-kind donations for our new charity shop. We are sure every one of you has some extra stuff that clutter your closets and you never use them again, but the item might be an invaluable gift for the needy person. By donating your unused clothing, laptop, books, or any other item you are inadvertently contributing not only to poverty reduction, but also to safeguarding our Planet from ecological disasters.
The shop will be totally run by volunteers except the shop-manager. Part of the collected goods will be given to those who are in need and the part will be sold and the financial resources will support our innovative projects.
We welcome everyone! Join us to make difference and improve the world we live in!
Peace building Peace building is integral part of the GCI program, contributing to a climate of mutual understanding and tolerance through joint activities and peace education. Thus, communities are linked not only based on their development status but also on the basis of past or current conflicts. Peace building models between and within the communities will be developed, beginning with Osh communities where they will cooperate on peace building activities related to youth and children.
Youth development Youth development is based on the need to develop personal characteristics in young people that will help them become better citizens and more successful in public life. Youth development programs stress developing personal identity, responsibility, caring, and tolerance.
