God seems to have a special place in his heart for the “least of these” in the world’s eyes, who need our help most. Jesus tells his listeners that every time they help the “least of these” they are doing it for Him, the King! Every time we reach out to the hungry, sick, homeless or imprisoned, we are serving and loving Jesus.
INSPIRATIONS OF THE FOUNDERS
With nearly 100 years of diverse business experience on a local, national and global scale, three men of God desired to bring to bear decades of collective know-how and relationships in international transacting, renewable energy development, governance, and deployment of state-of-the-art technology to manifest a level of social change in low-income urban and rural communities around the world.

As stated by the NAACP, environmental injustices, including climate change, have a disproportionate impact on communities of color and low income communities in the United States and around the world.
According to Feeding America, food insecurity refers to USDA’s measure of lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods. 89% of households with children are food insecure; 79% of households report purchasing inexpensive, unhealthy food to feed their family of households with children report this coping strategy.
Research by McKinsey & Company, one of the leading management consulting companies in the world, shows that while we may have promised to create an educational system where there will be “no child left behind,” we’re still very far from living up to that promise. Not only do we continue to leave behind whole groups of children, but our failure to educate all our children to the highest levels means students in America overall are being left behind in a world where global competition is increasingly tough—resulting in huge costs for all of us.
As a global humanitarian organization, World Vision says, access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene gives children and their families a chance to flourish. [They go on to say] every child deserves - and hast the right - to use safe water and live in a clean environment. When children and families use clean water, live in environments free from waste, and wash their hands with soap, they are more likely to be well educated and grow up with good health and food security.
It is from the gravity of the aforementioned issues that the opportunity arises from which Global Energy Matters LLC. (GEM) derives its business value and inspiration.
