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.
