Governance

At Global Poverty Project, we believe in transparency to our supporters as much as we believe in transparent systems for the world’s poor. In this section you will find a range of documents for people interested in finding out more about us and our approach.

Governance Structures

The Global Board approves strategy goals, plans and budgets and ensures country consistency.  Additionally, the Global Board approves policies and ensures robust compliance systems are in place. The board meets at least six times a year and operates in line with our Governance Policy and Global Board Charter.
