Our Mission and History
The Global Initiative for Indigenous Advancement, Inc (GIIA) is a 501c3 NGO created in 2000, with the mission of advancing the social, health, education, and economic status of Indigenous people worldwide. By splitting the mission into these four equally important pillars, GIIA can better serve the Indigenous communities around the world by addressing the plight of the Native people everywhere and its root causes. Donating to the cause, and signing up to join our cause and become an ally are the two single most impactful ways you can aid us in succeeding in our mission!
The Global Initiative for Indigenous Advancement hopes to empower Indigenous people, by giving them access to proper health care, business training, educational workshops, college funding, networking capabilities, and many other helpful tools to help tribes and their members not only survive, but thrive as well.
The most important parts of the Global Initiative for Indigenous Advancement are the people themselves. By banding together and creating a vast network of people, experience, and resources, our initiative to support and advance Indigenous people evolves from a dream to an eventual reality.
