• You and GHNI Transform Leaders

    You may agree that empowering leaders of developing nations is essential to ending extreme poverty. The Geneva Institute of Leadership and Public Policy, Transformational Leadership Development, and the Criminal Law and Policy Center are working to solve problems, provide training, and bring transformational leaders to the next level for their area of influence.  

    By empowering leaders, we are working from the top down to impact the lives of those living in extreme poverty, those who are vulnerable to human trafficking and those impacted by a disaster or political unrest.  Will you consider offering a scholarship to a leader from one of these regions of the world today?

  • What is Transformational Community Development?

    Through Transformational Community Development (TCD), villages around the world are learning to become self-sustaining and breaking the cycle of extreme poverty. 

    Community village leaders work alongside TCD staff to form five development committees in water, food, wellness, education, and income generation.  From helping villages access clean water to helping families create a sustainable income, villages are able to address problems and develop solutions for their community while using local resources.

    Transformational Community Development allows the village to take ownership and lead their community towards sustainable transformation!

  • Do you know Wubshet & Habiba Mengesha?

    Wubshet and Habiba direct GHNI’s work among the poor villages of northern Kenya. They come to GHNI with a strong background in helping the poor, having previously worked with Food for the Hungry and similar organizations.

    The Mengeshas have a lively family of three school-age children, and all speak multiple languages. And because of their extensive knowledge of the rural poor in Kenya they are often involved in regional discussions and coordination efforts.
