About Our Charity
GARD is a grassroots non-government organization dedicated to assisting others in developing countries through clean water and education programs. We believe these programs are best carried out in a joint effort between us and the people, and therefore community involvement is the foundation for its success.
This involvement provides people with project ownership, skills training and a broader knowledge base; the ingredients for a sustainable project. It also provides the opportunity for our volunteers to interact with people on a personal level and to develop a better understanding of the needs and values of the area.
