SHGO believes that community development is self-reflective, and truly starts at home. From SHGO’s office base in Worcester, Massachusetts, and USA, the local needs look different than those of SHGO’s international partners – but are certainly just as critical. SHGO is committed to partnering with local non-profit organizations and non-governmental organizations to support education, health, basic needs, and more – with a particular interest in collaborations with organizations and individuals that work locally, but strive for global impact. This includes important partnerships with higher education institutions to advance international development theory, practice, technical solutions, and experiential learning. Through US-based partnership-development, SHGO strives to connect local allies aligned to do good.
