“What is unique about Global Partners for Development is that the ideas we try to get up are not our own. The ideas come from local people who understand their needs… and it has been pretty successful so far,” says Amy Holter, director of programs and evaluation.
Another unique feature of NAPW is that the organization contributes financially to a variety of other local community organizations, through a percentage of the bi-annual $60 dues that each member pays.
The organization serves those who are working to protect and heal children and families. They work to optimize established programs and services so that children, families and communities are served in a holistic way based on best practices and current research. For every one person served by CIR, hundreds more are reached.
