Within our global operations, the commitment to providing support is the bedrock on which rests everything from project development to program participation. Support means fostering an environment where everyone feels safe, equal, and capable in all aspects of work and life in local community contexts and at GVI bases. Through providing support in various ways and capacities to all our stakeholders, we aim to facilitate independence, self-empowerment, and mutual learning. We work toward this with our Ethical Commitments of Primum Non Nocere and Children and Vulnerable Adults Protection.
