We would like to share the most recent trustee report from the GVI Charitable Trust. This report covers the six month period from July to December 2011.
This has been by far the most successful period. In six months we have raised nearly as much as we did the whole previous year. This increase in funding has brought a corresponding increase in the impact we have been able to create on our programs around the world.
During this period we have invested in sustainable education across Latin America. This includes support for the elderly in Guatemala and income generation schemes to support education in Honduras and Ecuador. In Mexico we have worked with a community to establish a recycling centre and in Kenya our partners in Mombasa will now see impoverished students complete primary education to earn qualifications for the first time.
These are just a few highlights of an amazing, productive and rewarding six months. Thank you to everyone who has supported us and played a crucial role in these achievements.
In addition to learning about and caring for wildlife in their environment this project aims to get the children to look after their own environments as well.
As such a day was organised to get the children to clean their own village. Armed with bin bags and gloves children and volunteers set to work cleaning 3kms of street and the taxi rank returning with 65 bin bags full of trash!
To wind down after a hard days graft the team took in beautiful views of the mountains at the dam with a soft drink.
We have been working hard to establish a plan for expanding eco clubs in the area and have some very exciting ideas. We look forward to seeing them develop in the new year.
Many thanks for your support for this project.
