CHARTING IMPACT
What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
We aim to provide 12 essential services, as prescribed by the United Nations, to every partner community who requests volunteer
assistance in the areas of hygiene education, nutrition, and conversational English teaching/classroom tutoring.
Teaching and modeling hand washing with soap: Of the approximately 120 million children born in the developing world each year,
half will live in households without access to improved sanitation, at grave risk to their survival and development. Poor hygiene and
lack of access to sanitation together contribute to about 88% of deaths from diarrheal diseases, accounting for 1.5 million diarrhea-
related under-five deaths each year. Hand washing with soap is the single most effective – and accessible – intervention to reduce
and prevent disease and death. From a cost-benefit perspective, washing with soap is three times more effective than building
latrines, nearly 60 times as effective as providing clean running water, and more than 300 times as effective as any single
immunization. Global Volunteers' direct access to at-risk children and families in host communities worldwide is instrumental in
advancing the practice of hand washing.
Teaching and supporting container gardening: Hundreds of millions of children may not have eaten today, and have no idea where
their meal might come from tomorrow. Hunger is debilitating in every sense: physically, socially, intellectually, and spiritually. But
hunger is not inevitable. We have all the tools and agricultural technology necessary to ensure that nearly every hungry family can
grow their own food to feed themselves and their children. Many of these tools and technologies are appropriate for those who farm
on extremely small plots and may have limited education. School and household gardens in raised containers are an effective means
for transferring agricultural technology and skills. Global Volunteers helps supply and maintain small gardens to help meet the
essential nutritional needs of school-aged children.
Teaching conversational English and other classroom subjects: Increasingly, English language skills have become crucial to success in
virtually any profession, as it is regarded the international language of commerce, technology and opportunity. Global Volunteers is
committed to helping host communities advance in their understanding of, appreciation for, and fluency in English. Children living in
poverty typically have access to only inadequate educational resources. As they progress through each grade, they lose greater
capability if instruction and material resources are insufficient to advance their intellectual development. We provide classroom and
after-school tutoring at all levels in science, math, geography, and life skills, and provide special education support.
What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
Through a sustained, year-round, long-term stream of volunteer assistance, professional expertise and material resources, we
directly address childhood stunting and other conditions which cause cognitive delays and restrict children's ability to reach their full
potential.
Teaching and modeling hand washing with soap
1. Modeling proper hand washing in schools, kitchens and at work sites
2. Focusing on children – the most susceptible to disease, and also the most open to change
3. Providing soap – the critical ingredient missing in current village hand washing habits
4. Teaching hygiene education in classrooms and assisting with hand washing events
5. Supporting a sustained, year-around targeted hand washing campaign
6. Engaging and encouraging community leaders, teachers and administrators to model proper hand washing
Providing school and household gardens
1. Helping demonstrate the use of raised container gardens and how they provide critical micronutrients for pregnant women, new
mothers and children.
2. Teaching horticulture, ecology, biology, basic garden management, nutrition
3. Helping install and maintain school and household gardens as community demonstrations
4. Helping communicate demonstration garden techniques to community farmers

2. Construct potable water systems, fuel efficient stoves, sanitary latrines and water catchment systems
3. Manufacture container gardens on site with locally resourced materials
What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
Global Volunteers has the experience, know-how and commitment to carry out each of our stated community service strategies. Our
legacy of service is demonstrated in more than 36,000 short-term volunteers of all ages and backgrounds over 36 years contributing
to long-term development programs in more than 200 partner communities in 34 countries on six continents.
We're led by experts in human and economic development with profound service credentials:
• Country managers who are highly educated local nationals and fluent in English.
• Senior executives with advanced degrees in in International Development, Law, International Communications, Public Affairs,
English, and Business Administration.
• Management team embodying 100+ years of international living, academic and career expertise.
• Global staff sharing a broad vision of comprehensive community service.
• Co-founders with five decades of executive expertise in business, non-profits, and federal and state governments.
• Devoted hosts and community partners in all parts of the world; from pre-schools, crisis centers and orphanages to colleges,
universities and health clinics.
• Providing essential services in special consultative status with the United Nations – Economic and Social Council
We offer year-round volunteer assistance to help deliver 12 Essential Services to every partner community. We extracted the 12
Essential Services model from the innovative work of the World Food Program (WFP), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF),
World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Our landmark work organized these essential

services into three broad categories: Hunger, Health and Cognition. These are the areas where volunteers have the greatest impact. In
over three decades, we've proven the efficacy of this model, as measured by volunteers, community partners and outside evaluators.
Through volunteer opportunities abroad, children are fed, clothed, taught and cared for. Their health and cognition is improved.
Schools are built, clean water is provided, dormitories are enlarged, teachers are supported, household gardens are planted, libraries
are equipped, pregnant women and mothers are counseled, homes are restored – all with rippling effects throughout each
community.
In every partner community, our strength is our long-term relationship with community decision makers. An obvious example of this
intention is our most ambitious program to date: In Ipalamwa, Tanzania. Working alongside local people to define a long-term
vision for the district, we've completed an RCP Center/Guesthouse with a $200,000 volunteer donation, and have secured a $5.6M
grant enabling us to have built a state-of-the-art rural health clinic to serve five communities and beyond. We've assembled a wide
cross-section of professionals for our Reaching Children's Potential Advisory Committee, which assesses and evaluates every element
of our program delivery.
How will they know if they are making progress?
Our program delivery model requires close partnerships with local community leaders, facilitating clear, ground-level evaluation of
service project outcomes. Through high-level associations, our international volunteer service work protects children's security and
welfare as we address hunger, poverty and educational needs around the world.
For instance, we've taught English to entire villages, built schools and water systems where there were none, cared for children who
had nowhere else to turn, supplied pregnant women and new mothers with household gardens and professional assistance, and so
much more. Most important, we've proven that these people-to-people initiatives are successful where simply writing a check too
often fails.
Measurable, positive outcomes in international volunteer service is our agenda. International volunteer service teams provide the
resources enabling us to succeed.
We collect data on volunteers' contributions on every service program to match against projected outcomes, making adjustments in
our program delivery to maximize impact. Each partnership has service goals, specified annually, measured and reported to the Board
of Directors quarterly, and reported to UN ECOSOC every four years. These outcomes provide the foundation for all volunteer service
work going forward in every country.
Examples of measurable outcomes in recent years:
• 4,730 Children fed or provided nutritional care
• 1,075 Mothers provided nutrition training
• 9,880 Hours of teacher training
• 236,195 Students taught conversational English
• 6,210 Hours of math, science instruction
• 20,680 Children given direct health care
• 7,020 Children immunized
• 3,980 Women provided prenatal care
• 8,875 Teens, adults given general medical care
• 9,174 Individuals provided HIV/AIDS education
Global Volunteers has consistently responded to local leaders' requests for community assistance in the broad areas of nutrition,
health care and cognitive development. Our Reaching Children's Potential (RCP) Demonstration Program in Tanzania models the
efficacy of a steady stream of short-term volunteers to deliver human and material resources to local children and families. RCP
begins with pregnancy and continues through the 18th birthday, but focuses on the first 1,000 days. Each of these measurements and
reports are reviewed by Global Volunteers' Board of Directors and are available for review by funders, donors and other supporters.
What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
In partner communities where we've primarily offered conversational English language instruction, we've taught up to 200 students

On September 8, 2011, the IRS issued regulations which eliminated the advance ruling process for a section 501(c)(3) organization. Learn more
* The Foundation Status Code is the code that foundations are required to provide for each grantee annually on part XV of Form 990PF. Note that this code cannot be derived
in some cases (e.g., supporting organizations for which 'type' can't be determined).
IRS Revenue Procedure 2011-33 allows grantors to rely on third-party resources, such as GuideStar Charity Check, to obtain required Business Master File (BMF) data
concerning a potential grantee's public charity classification under section 509 (a) (1), (2) or (3).
GuideStar Charity Check Data Sources
GuideStar acquires all IRS data directly from the Internal Revenue Service.
IRS Publication 78 (Cumulative List of Organizations) lists organizations that have been recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as eligible to receive tax-deductible
contributions.
The IRS Internal Revenue Bulletin (IRB) lists changes in charitable status since the last Publication 78 release. Between the release of IRS Publication 78 and the
subsequent IRS Internal Revenue Bulletin, the IRB date will reflect the most recent release date of IRS Publication 78.
The IRS Business Master File lists approximately 1.7 million nonprofits registered with the IRS as tax-exempt organizations.
The IRS Automatic Revocation of Exemption List contains organizations that have had their federal tax-exempt status automatically revoked for failing to file an annual
return or notice with the IRS for three consecutive years.
The Foundation Status Code is a value derived by mapping the codes found on the 990PF filing instructions to the corresponding codes in the IRS BMF. Note that not all
codes are able to be mapped due to insufficient data.
The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list organizations that are owned or controlled by targeted individuals, groups, and
entities, such as terrorists or narcotics traffickers.Their assets are blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them.
GuideStar is the registered trademark and operating name of GuideStar USA, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
