GSI is founded on the desire to strengthen the capacity and resolve of community members and groups in the role they play in community-driven change.

GSI builds the capacity of community groups to create systemic change, and a pathway to sustainability. The community–driven approaches prepare members to identify, innovate, address, and respond to challenges.

We utilize participatory approaches to facilitate sharing of information and knowledge, community mobilizing and organizing, and capacity building to ensure community ownership and sustainability of solutions.
