Value Change

GCI works with children around the world to raise awareness about environmental issues and thereby build understanding and resilience among the next generation about the environmental challenges they will inherit.

Social and Medical Care

GCI conducts public health programmes among communities vulnerable to chemical radiation and hazardous chemicals to help manage their exposure and provide livelihoods for those living with severe deformities.
