Global Sustaining Partnerships

A 501(c)(3) Organization, Established in 2010

Since 2010, the mission of Global Sustainable Partnerships (GSP) has focused on providing access to clean and safe drinking water to improve the lives and health of children and families and to empower women in breaking the cycle of poverty in developing countries.

In 2020, GSP pivoted and redirected our efforts to the US, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We prioritize the need for solutions to address the wide range of inequities, prevalent in African American and African Diaspora communities, including the traumatic impact and despair resulting from impact Covid 19, the economic downturn and the heightened racial injustice.

Health Initiatives

Hot off the press!  Global Sustainable Partnerships (GSP), in partnerships with the Healthcare Initiative Foundation (HIF) and the Black Physicians and Healthcare Network (BPHN) created PSAs/videos, which display how to use in-home COVID Test kits.  These videos have been developed in the following languages, English, Amharic, Tigrigna, French, and Kiswahili to meet the needs of our Black residents across the Diaspora.  We are getting the word out about the great work that BPHN is doing in our communities to assist Black Montgomery County residents with gaining access to healthcare services with Black Physicians, Health Care Practitioners (e.g., dental, primary care, pediatricians, OBGYN, etc.) and Mental Health Practitioners – a game-changer for our communities.  Please share with your social media platforms, colleagues, friends, and family.

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Grant supports Advancing Equitable Health to Reduce Diabetes

Our diabetes program recruited over three hundred and eighty African American women in Wards 7 & 8 in Washington, DC, two hundred twelve women completed our program, and one hundred and six participants received vaccinations. Our diabetes program success was built on community buy-in and trust — A “win-win” for CareFirst and GSP. Our motto is “Wellness is a Journey Not a Destination.” New cohort starts May 2022.

It Takes A Village COVID-19 Outreach

GSP is leading integrated, multi-cultural, competent COVID vaccination, and education and outreach events to provide access to the vaccine and debunk misinformation about vaccine, adult boosters and pediatric vaccines, and the importance of getting the vaccine(s), (for example, it is vetted, safe, and accessible). In order to overcome the problematic history of unethical health practices in the African American communities, we intentionally educate the community that an African American woman, Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, PhD., is among the National Institute of Health (NIH) scientists who worked directly to develop and produce the Moderna COVID-19 vaccination.

The Alliance: Mental Health Support for Black and Brown Communities

The Alliance was established to address the cross-generational traumatic impact and despair in the African American and African Diaspora communities, which was exacerbated by COVID-19. The Alliance is creating culturally sensitive “safe spaces” that provides mental health and emotional support, laying the groundwork for self-awareness, recovery and healing.

Global Initiatives

Through our initiatives, we have created a global network of women leaders who utilize the social impact of their entrepreneurial efforts to reinvest in their communities (e.g., clean water, connectivity, electricity, school fees/uniforms, etc.).  Through a variety of programs, this network acts as a catalyst to create healthier communities, alleviate poverty, and inspire new generations of businesswomen/businessmen.

  • A child dies every 20 seconds from a water-related disease
  • Dirty water kills more children than AIDS, malaria & measles combined


GSP works at the ground level and has created a sustainable business model that has earned community support. GSP’s novel strategy worked – we ensured that the filters would take firm hold in the schools and GSP has installed more than 900 water filters in primary and secondary schools, households, orphanages, health dispensaries and a district hospital in Tanzania, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe.

WPEC is composed of global visionaries and female business leaders partnering with entrepreneurs and investors to match opportunities for community development and economic growth. We seek to showcase women utilizing social impact in their entrepreneurial efforts and propelling the current wave of innovation to drive global sustainable development.
