    Experiential Education Limited t/a GVI commented on this review
    Hi Yvonne, Thank you for reaching out and we recognize your complaint, value your feedback and appreciate you taking the time to get in touch with us about your concerns. GVI was created “To build a global network of people united by its passion to make a difference.” We aim to engage people from around the world to global issues and UN SDGs and give them the knowledge, passion, skills and confidence, to continue that journey beyond GVI. We engage local community members, local people and partners, academic institutions, GVI staff and paying participants in long- term local objectives and projects. Our funding comes almost entirely from paying participants, who pay different amounts based upon: · Costs associated with: - Program types - Program focuses - Different locations - Different levels of support · Their socio-economic background · The demand for their program and / or location at the time of booking · Purchasing power parity between markets ((ie. currency conversion that equalize the purchasing power of different currencies by eliminating the differences in price levels between countries) · How well GVI is known in their country · The costs of promoting GVI in their country or region (these can vary enormously between countries and depend upon the financial strength and number of other organizations advertising in the country. For example, in the US paid online advertising costs us on average 3 to 4 times as much as it does in the UK, per person we recruit. Its competitiveness explains why all organizations, if they are tracking their costs, charge higher prices in the US market, above and beyond formal exchange rates. · The prices for programs being offered by competitors within that market place Ultimately, we aim to offer our programs at costs which allow us to recruit the people and the funds we need to ensure our programs can provide long-term and sustainable impact and fulfil our mission.
