GVI Charitable Trust update and Bonus day

This quarter has seen some exciting developments for the Trust's projects thanks to the fantastic support and donations received through GlobalGiving
  • The Seychelles have successfully completed their creation of a Carbon Neutral base. The Curieuse base has implemented a photovoltaic system, designed with the remit of supplying 24hrs electricity a day seven days a week, being highly corrosive resistant to cope with island beachfront conditions and to be maintenance free and easy operate. The solar system works perfectly saving nearly $7000 annually in fuel bills as well as avoiding 9 tons of Co² emissions. 
  • We have also been able to close the Cyclone Evan disaster recovery fund with almost $6000 FJD fundraised. In the aftermath of the cyclone GVI Fiji has been able to provide resources, funding and volunteer labour to assist the communities in their recovery, including delivering 1964kg of dry food to communities in need.
  • Cape Town are busy digging and constructing a new turf area on project thanks to the generous donation of an ex-volunteer and her sister
  • Thanks to all the funds raised by Mexico, they have begun building their recycling centre! 
  • We have some exciting new programs now live! 
    • 'Protect the threatened White Rhino in South Africa' 
    •  'Protect dogs from malnutrition and disease in Fiji.' 
For those of you that are not aware, on this day (from 9am Eastern standard time in the USA) all donations through GlobalGiving USA will be matched at 50% for the Charitable Trust. Help us make an additional difference on this day, share our story with family and friends. We always love inviting people into the GVI family. 

Many thanks for all you have done to support the Charitable Trust
