Our Mission

Our Community-driven actions are meant to impact the struggles that the children and their families are confronted with while lacking the tools for self sufficiency. GLOBAL EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES (GEDI) works hand in hand with global partners in community development by uplifting and empowering individuals disadvantaged by poverty and challenging circumstances.

Our Vision

GEDI envisions developing initiatives taking into consideration a holistic approach to the education of each child and adult in their existing communities. In providing child and family protection, in a nurturing and loving environment where learning is encouraged, our aim is to provide a safety net for risk-taking and self-actualization.

villages or in impoverish region in the world; regardless of race, ethnicity, religious beliefs or political associations.

Good health is the foundation of a child’s life. Access to essential services, vaccinations, medical clinics, and training in disease prevention provide stronger health, for children and their communities. 

Child Protection
