Mission: Advancing community-owned development in East Africa.

GPFD believes community leadership is the key to responsible and sustainable development and that local people have the right to drive change in their schools and communities.

Because we recognize that education is exceedingly important in the fight against poverty and that schools are often the epicenters of development in rural communities, our initial engagement begins with local primary schools. From there, we strive to get and keep kids in school by placing resources and decision-making power in the hands of local people.

Community meetings facilitated by GPFD staff build relationships between schools and local people, better communities' perception of the importance of education, and encourage encourage teachers to integrate into communities. School staff and community members work together to identify, implement, and sustain projects that impact attendance and other education and health outcomes.
