National Scholars from the USA

Dear supporter,

I hope this finds you well.  As we mentioned in our last report, we are still seeking partners for this program within the United States.  As our Trust grows in both scale and reputation we are finally accessing the funding required to both maintain our present commitments globally and initiate some of our other longer term aims. 

The objective is to be able to allow select under-privileged young adults from the United States, have already shown initiative within their own communities, further opportunities to help increase their awareness regarding global and local issues, facilitate an opportunity for them to help make direct impact on those issues and empower them to continue making impact once their scholarship is finished, either within their own communities or through developing a career in their chosen field.

If you have any any questions, comments or ideas for this project, please contact me at info@gvi.org.

Thank you for your kind donations that have allowed the project to get this far, and all the very best,

Kind regards

Sophie Birkett

Searching for partnerships

Dear Supporter,

I hope this finds you well. We are seeing a small number of donations coming in for this project and as always, we ask for your continued help with expanding this project. We have been looking for suitable recipients for this project.

The objective is to be able to allow select under-privileged young adults from the United States, have already shown initiative within their own communities, further opportunities to help increase their awareness regarding global and local issues, facilitate an opportunity for them to help make direct impact on those issues and empower them to continue making impact once their scholarship is finished, either within their own communities or through developing a career in their chosen field.

We are looking to build links with schools, groups, organisations and charities across the US to seek partnerships and offer opportunities to young people to help them see and then fulfil their own potential to help themselves and others.

Thank you for your support as always. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or ideas at info@gvi.org.

Kind regards

Partnership opportunities for 2013

The GVI Charitable Trust National Scholarship Program supports projects around the world benefitting disadvantaged people and providing opportunities for them to receive education and training which will lead to long term improvements for them, their communities and environments.

In 2012, we expanded the National Scholarship program to the United States, with the aim to provide opportunities also to disadvantaged individuals which will help them to undergo training and create opportunities which will open doors and lead to positive developments.

Unfortunately, this project has struggled to get the attention and the donors that we feel it deserves. Donations have slowly come in, but we desperately need further funds to be able to reach scholars in future years. We are also looking for partnership opportunities with youth organisations in the United States to enable an easier selection process for the scholars as well as giving us greater access to funds from the government, corporations, fundraising bodies, fundraisers and donors if possible. Any assistance or help you can offer in fundraising is desperately needed and welcome! For more information, please see www.gvi.org

Many thanks to everyone who supports us in this endeavour.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! We hope 2013 has started well for you. Here at the Global Vision International Charitable Trust we are looking forward to an exciting year! 

As we mentioned in our previous report, we have been working towards teaming up with an US charity on this project to give us greater access to funds from the government, corporations, fundraising bodies, fundraisers and donors. We hope to have this finalised shortly, announce the partnership and use it to award the scholarships that we can presently fund. Our program is based upon offering opportunities to youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, to allow them not only to grow as individuals through life experience, work experience and training, but equip them with the confidence to work towards improving the situations of others within their own communities and in other communities. 

Great success for the GVI CT in 2012 and some great recognition of our work has been very helpful in forming partnerships. This momentum will allow us to move this project forward further in 2013. Any assistance or help you can offer in fundraising is desperately needed and welcome! For more information, please see www.gvi.org

Thank you all for your fundraising efforts and donations and we look forward to reporting continued success in the coming months.

NSP USA Update

Despite a surprisingly successful year for the Global Vision International Charitable Trust, this project has really struggled to get the attention and the donors that we feel it deserves. Donations have slowly come in, enough donations for us to start to move the project forward, and we are now selecting scholars to train in 2013, which is great news, but we desperately need further funds to be able to reach a higher number of scholars in future years.

As a result of the need and what we feel is the great need for this project given the state of unemployment, in particular between the ages of 16 and 24 we are prioritizing this project and focusing our attentions on finding ways to seek further donors and fundraisers and give it a higher profile. As this year has seen some great success for the GVI CT, and some great recognition of our work which has been very helpful in forming partnerships and relationships, we feel we now have the momentum to allow us to move this project forward further in 2013. We are teaming up with a very well known US charity on this project to give us greater access to funds from the government, corporations, fundraising bodies, fundraisers and donors. The partnership should also enable an easier selection process for the scholars.

In the New Year we plan to announce the partnership and use it to award the scholarship that we can presently fund, and through reporting upon their experiences raise further funds. Any assistance or help you can offer in fundraising is desperately needed and welcome! For more information, please see www.gvi.org

Thank you for your kind donations that have allowed the project to get this far, and all the very best,

Steve
