• 20 Years Of Sustainable Impact

    536 views 6 months ago
    GVI started in 1998 when one man didn’t like that a development project he worked on wouldn’t make a lasting difference.

    And then...

    20 years later, over:
    35,000 participants,
    200 National Scholars,
    600 community partnerships,
    300,000 community members,
    Hundreds of staff.
    With 5 new locations,
    20 years of sustainable impact later.

    GVI started as one single story,
    And then became thousands.
    Stories of success,
    Of perseverance,
    Of growth,
    Stories of impact.

    Stories come from somewhere,
    And then they go somewhere.
    People make a decision,
    And then they change their lives.

    GVI has been the ‘and then’ moment for 20 Years, for so many people.
    We’ve been the somewhere, the something that gave endless possibilities to go somewhere, to do something.

    Ordinary people with extraordinary stories.

    They started somewhere.
    They did something.
    They made a decision.

    And then they made a difference.
    And then they grew themselves.
    And then they achieved the impossible.

    And then they changed the world.

    GVI is 20-years-old now.
    And then…?
