Welcome to Global Resource Alliance

GRA is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to bringing hope, joy and abundance in the Mara Region of Tanzania. By sharing ideas, volunteers and financial resources with local, community and women based organizations we seek to promote natural, holistic and sustainable solutions to the challenges of poverty, malnutrition and disease. The inspiration and leadership for our work comes from the communities we serve. We believe that empowering women and local communities to address pressing social, economic and environmental challenges according to their own vision and their own creative potential is the key to lasting solutions.
