About Global Peace Network - Pos+Abilities
Pos+Abilities is a program of Global Peace Network, a volunteer-based, registered charity with it's head office in Vancouver, British Columbia.
We have seen great progress in Tanzania, and we continually review our objectives to match the real-world needs of the communities that we serve. In particular, as the government has made primary and middle-school education free for all, we are now focusing on providing opportunities in higher education, especially for girls, women and the disabled, who have been historically disadvantaged. Further, as great progress has been made in combating infectious and vector-borne diseases such as HIV/AIDS and malaria, we are now devoting more of our clinical attention to helping those with disabilities. To reflect the refocusing of our organization, we have amalgamated our clinical and educational initiatives under a single program which we call Pos+Abilities, to reflect the positive changes that we work to bring about in the disadvantaged and those with disabilities.
