The Common Good Union (CGU) aims to play a vital role in addressing some of the most pressing global issues, such as poverty, inequality, security, and environmental degradation. However, we understand that we cannot address all of these issues on our own. That's why a global multi-faceted approach is important for us.
There are a few different ways that we aim to fulfill our mission:
Partnerships and collaborations: Another way for CGU to work with multiple causes is through partnerships and collaborations with other organizations. For example, we may partner with another non-profit focused on poverty alleviation in a specific region to develop sustainable livelihoods for communities living in conservation areas.
It is important to note that CGU does have a clear and specific mission statement, which aligns with our cause and strive to communicate effectively to our donors, volunteers, and other stakeholders. Furthermore, we ensure that all the programs and initiatives are aligned with the mission statement and are in compliance with the laws and regulations of the countries where we are working.
We believe before someone can take action it is necessary to learn about the history and underlying cause. That is why we are dedicated to educating the public about the various global charitable causes that we support. One of the ways we do this is by creating detailed literature and information guides about these causes - we call these guides "Stories," they are detailed, but at approximately 10,000 words will take the average person only about 1 hour to read, listen or watch. We make these Stories as accessible as possible with versions available in audio (via cgu.org and on your favorite podcast platform), video (via YouTube), eBook (via cgu.org and Amazon) and even print (via Amazon).
Each CGU Story includes information such as:
Our Stories are designed to be easy to read and understand, and are available in multiple media formats to ensure that they reach a wide audience.
We believe that by educating the public about global charitable causes, we can increase awareness, raise funds, and mobilize action to make a real impact in the world.
