The goal of GAC is to have a global impact through working locally. For example, we Clynk in school and then use this money to pay the school fees of a child at the Siddartha school.
In meetings, GAC usually decides where to donate money through Kiva (micro-loan program). One of our main activities is volunteering at Partners for World Health. PWH takes medical supplies that have expired (due to strict US laws), organizes it, and sends it to countries around the world in need.
GAC'S biggest accomplishments have probably been PWH volunteering, we have also been able to support several students' educations (Siddartha school), we have also donated lots of money through Kiva to help small businesses. We also had a very successful clothing drive last year and the clothes were donated to Catholic Charities which distributed them to refugees.
In the future, GAC hopes to continue all that we have been doing and possibly even raise enough money to fund the shipment of a container of medical supplies (this would take several years of fundraising).
