About Us

Poverty is just not lack of money; it is not having the capability to realize one’s full potential as a human being.

Amartya Sen

Global Socio Economic Association of Innovators (GSEAI) is committed to direct grassroots level intervention in measuring and shaping societal change

We aim to pursue sustainable development through collaborated efforts by developmental agencies, governmental organizations, and by the public, making development a community movement.

GSEAI believes development is the constant expansion of human capabilities and look at development from social, cultural, political and other dimensions affecting human life and progress to understand the big picture. We take pride in our process-oriented approach to capacity building toward social improvement and sustainable transformation.

Our goal is to empower our target groups to make them resilient to the social, economic and environmental challenge.

A transformed individual, when given access to viable economic pathways, can emerge from and lead their family out of poverty. Our roadmap for driving change for individuals, families and communities is based on this core belief

We believe

We believe that there is enough and more for everyone on our planet. Poverty makes no sense in such a world of abundance.

We think

We think that the key to tackling poverty is to address the deprivation of capabilities that keeps a person from living a life they have reason to value.

We work

We work with marginalized groups and communities to trigger transformation at many levels and to create pathways to a better life for them.
