Global Merit & Essence Awards Network (GMEAN) is a global Not for Profit, non-partisan, charitable organization incorporated under the laws of Ontario and Alberta. We are committed to serving the marginalized, vulnerable and underrepresented communities around the world.

Through its entities and programs, GMEAN will address social, & economic issues in communities from rural areas in more economically developed countries to villages, cities, peri-urban and rural communities in developing countries…one community at a time!

GMEAN believes strongly in collaboration and will work with established organizations in global communities. We continue to partner with local businesses, educational and social programs that target vulnerable and marginalized youth, seniors, veterans and visible minorities (including the disabled). We collaborate NOT compete.
