“हमने तो कभी बिटगिविंग, मिलाप जैसे नाम सुने भी नहीं थे गैप ने हमे ये सब सिखाया और क्राउड फंडिंग के बारे में सिखाया|”
“I am able to focus on my goal with lot more clarity and conviction after interacting with my GAP Coach”
“गैप से लीडरशिप कोचिंग मिलने के बाद मुझे बहुत कॉन्फिडेंस मिला है और मैं अपनी संस्था अच्छे से संभाल सकती हूँ”
“Thanks to GAP Coaching, I am able to understand and communicate Bhumi’s Changemaker plan better. The coaching helped me to manage my time, the way I work and how I feel every day”

Global Action on Poverty (GAP) invites applications from individuals who are working on a powerful initiative to eradicate poverty, or making a deep impact to less advantaged people, anywhere in the world. We believe that, if NGO’s, companies, professionals, individuals all work together we can use existing resources to move people out of poverty.
गैप ऐसी संस्था और व्यक्ति को आवेदन भरने के लिए प्रेरित करता है जो की गरीबी मिटाने के लिए जुटे हुए हैं | गैप विश्वास करता है कि विशेषज्ञता, संसाधनों और क्षमताओं को प्रदान करके जीवन के अनेक क्षेत्रों में काम कर रहे लोगों को समर्थ व सशक्त करने से लोगों को गरीबी से बाहर निकालने के उनके प्रयासों को बढ़ावा मिलेगा।
