Global One 2015 (GO2015) is an international development and humanitarian organisation working with vulnerable communities worldwide. We aim to work with our target populations, primarily women and children, to provide them with the tools and opportunities they need to overcome poverty and live healthy, fulfilling lives.
GO2015 is the international wing of the Faith Regen Foundation (FRF), a Muslim led and multi-faith inspired UK-based charity established in 2001 and operating nationally and internationally in the areas of service provision and advocacy. In 2010, exactly ten years after its inception, the FRF established GO2015 to address international development issues while promoting self-reliance through the empowerment of disadvantaged communities worldwide.
Despite some progress made toward the elimination of poverty through the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), huge improvements in living standards and maternal health are still needed if the MDGs are to be achieved by their target date of 2015. The MDG target date acted as the motivator behind Global One 2015, hence its inclusion in the name.
Our thematic areas of interventions are:
- Healthcare, with expertise in maternal and child health – both in humanitarian response and long term programmes, with ability work effectively in faith based contexts
- Acute malnutrition – as part of humanitarian response and integrated into other health programmes
- WASH – water, sanitation and hygiene – in humanitarian emergencies and long term programmes
- Environmental sustainability – integrating this into our approach to WASH and covering environmental impact
