Our Charitable Objectives
Globalteer is a registered charity in the UK (registration number 1119706), so is legally required to ensure that 100% of all monies received are used to achieve the charitable objectives:
1) To promote sustainable development for the benefit of the public by the relief of poverty and the improvement of the conditions of life in socially disadvantaged communities.
Sustainable development means “development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
2) To promote humane behaviour towards animals by providing appropriate care, protection, treatment and security for animals which are in need of attention by reason of sickness, maltreatment, poor circumstances or ill usage, and to educate the public in matters pertaining to animal welfare in general and the prevention of cruelty and suffering among animals.
In order to achieve our charitable objectives, we employ the following strategies:
- Continual assessment of the needs of the communities with whom we work, including identification and implementation of new initiatives as necessary.
- Provision of safe spaces for children to spend time outside school, as well as supplementary educational and sporting activities which promote academic achievement and future opportunities.
- Creation of opportunities for women and girls to challenge gender norms and occupy different roles in society.
- Provision of veterinary care to animals that don’t have access to it and education of their owners about proper animal care and welfare.
- Support of partner projects that have a focus on wildlife rescue and environmental conservation.
- Partnership with projects that meet genuine local needs, as identified by the communities they serve, and that meet our criteria for sustainability and responsibility.
- Placement of suitably experienced volunteers at projects where they contribute towards achieving the projects’ short-term and long-term goals, while fostering the transfer of volunteer skills to local staff where possible.
- Helping to fund the continued development of partner projects through volunteer donations and post-placement volunteer fundraising.
- Support of our partner projects to help them become fully self-funded and locally managed with minimal requirement for external support.
