GAF is the integration of an academy, an operating foundation and several social enterprises that are currently incorporated in four jurisdictions: as foundations in the USA and Belgium and as companies in Sri Lanka and Brazil.

Since our inception in 1988, we continue to evolve our network organism model within which we collaborate as equal partners with a wide variety of individuals, non-profit organizations, companies and multi-lateral institutions to co-create change towards new, sustainable and humane mainstreams across diverse sectors and societies.

We do the majority of our work completely or almost for free so that our social benefit partners who have limited funding can nevertheless receive the kind of high impact support that normally only corporations can afford. We subsidize this pro bono work by receiving in-kind contributions and donations from individuals and foundations and by charging our sustainable business partners top consulting and coaching rates, which are justified by the rare combination of capacities and connections we can support them with.
