GVN Foundation was founded in 2005 to provide financial assistance and help implement sustainable development projects to local community organisations around the world. Whether that is building a school for orphans of HIV/AIDS or providing emergency food supplies to victims of natural disasters, GVN Foundation work to provide communities with the resources they need.
The GVN Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization in the United States and was granted Special consultative status by the United Nations Economic and Social Council in July, 2009.
The vision of the GVN Foundation is to support the charitable and educational work of local community organizations in various countries through the distribution of financial, in-kind and material donations.
The GVN Foundation is currently fundraising to support programs through our partner organizations in ten countries, such as Nepal, Kenya, Uganda, Romania, and Vietnam. The network continues to expand with new programs being researched and assessed.
At The GVN Foundation we believe in the idea of \’local solutions to local problems,\’ therefore we work with local community organizations in each country. We believe that local communities are in the best position to determine their needs, and we provide resources to help them achieve their goals.
The GVN Foundation is able to provide financial assistance to the local community organizations we support through our various programs and fundraisers:
