Global Partners for Development

"Since 1989, Global Partners for Development has worked to achieve an end to hunger throughout the world, especially as it affects the survival and development of children. Global Partners for Development was founded in 1978 as an organization called World Runners International, whose members used running to raise funds for ending hunger and poverty. After we began working in direct partnership with East African communities in 1989, we changed our name to better represent our mission and vision. Since its founding, Global Partners has been working in the East African countries of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, with projects that have included development of clean water sources, child nutrition, medical and health care, primary and vocational education, and women’s economic self-reliance. The purpose of Global Partners for Development is to bring outside resources to communities that struggle with the innumerable problems associated with hunger and poverty, and to assist those communities in bringing about appropriate development, improved health, education, and economic self-reliance."

Their partner organisationsa are Direct Relief International and Mama Na Dada. [2]
