ABOUT SEVEN HILLS GLOBAL OUTREACH
Seven Hills Global Outreach (SHGO), an Affiliate of Seven Hills Foundation, supports the humanitarian efforts of partnering health, education, and human services organizations in developing nations and home communities of Seven Hills’ diverse staff. Through technical assistance, social venture opportunities, and related collaborative efforts, SHGO serves as a national bellwether organization to stimulate the interest and involvement of social sector organizations, private sector corporations, and public sector agencies in advancing indigenous means to resolve global social challenges. SHGO has established partnerships with Ghana, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Liberia, Brazil, Guatemala, Haiti, Jamaica, and Bangladesh.
The greatest challenge for struggling communities around the world is the lack of access to basic resources. SHGO addresses the critical need for potable water, food, clothing, education and healthcare through the support of Seven Hills Foundation staff and partnerships with organizations in developing countries to sustain local solutions to these challenges.
Seven Hills Foundation is one of the largest health and human services providers in New England, with nearly 3,500 staff supporting 28,000 individuals with disabilities and medical and life challenges at over 150 locations in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
MISSION AND VISION
The Seven Hills Global Outreach strategy is based on a comprehensive model for grassroots community development that fosters local ownership, capacity-building, and empowerment. The three spheres - ECONOMIC, ENVIRONMENTAL and SOCIAL – represent key elements of sustainable development and show their interconnected nature. SHGO’s strategy promotes that in order for development to truly work, all three spheres must be addressed in tandem.

All of SHGO’s partnerships are focused on uplifting communities through local capacity-building, holistic approaches to development, and grassroots-level participation.
