About the GHFP
The GHFP was established in 1996. The founders believe that to effect change in the world, the individual ought to start from a deeper connection with his/her inner life and spirituality. This principle guides the GHFP's Trustees' decisions in terms of the focus of our work and how to approach it.
our motivating ideals are to work from, and to cultivate and support, human qualities and values.
