Global Communities is a leader in infrastructure and construction. The core of our approach to infrastructure development is working in partnership with communities, the private sector, local governments, ministries and donors to rebuild the critical services that low-income, conflict- and disaster-affected families need to create a better future. Global Communities seeks to work with partners in the private sector to undertake research and development that result in new, innovative solutions to the most pressing problems faced by communities and the world.
Global Communities' infrastructure and construction projects include, for example, new roads and bridges, water supply systems, schools and community centers. These facilitate better transportation, create healthier lives, improve education and provide for better marketing of goods and services. They also perform an important task of bridging gaps between communities divided by religious, civil and ethnic affiliations. Global Communities' projects are developed through democratic decision-making based on priorities identified by the communities and local government. By giving communities the tools to realize shared goals through facilitated interaction and by building the capacity of local organizations to select, oversee and manage projects, we promote stability, self-sufficiency and enhance the ability of millions to engage their local governments.
