Awakening a Generation of Global Citizens
As valuable as GIVE’s projects on the ground may be, they are just tiny drops in a vast ocean of global inequality. Solving the world’s greatest challenges and ending extreme poverty will require a lifetime of collective action from ordinary people around the world. Since 2012, by establishing genuine connections between our volunteers and host community members, educating volunteers on the world’s biggest challenges, educating them in sustainable tourism and inspiring them to take action, and providing alumni with post-trip tools and resources to increase their impact upon returning home, GIVE has become a powerful catalyst in activating thousands of global citizens across the planet. These people will become the next generation of social entrepreneurs, parents, community leaders, educators and so much more – working together to end extreme poverty and uplift every member of the human race. GIVE’s past volunteers are living proof that we should all stop viewing our contributions as just drops in the ocean, and started viewing the ocean as a collection of drops.
