About Us

Serving God by
serving others


Global Action is a Christian nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the best care for the world's poorest children.

Since 1995, our supporters have modeled God's love and provided children with education, healthcare, food, and shelter. Your help transforms children from being on the brink of despair to having hope for their future.


A world where no child has to endure the shame, indignity, and despair of poverty.

Global Action | Making a Difference


The word "action" in our name describes us perfectly.

Your gifts to Global Action are quickly used to help children with food, education, and healthcare. We are fast, because we work with local organizations who know the neediest kids and families in their communities. They make sure that your donations are quickly put to good use in times of need.

Our Mission

Global Action International is a partnership of people whose mission is to make a difference in this world.  We combine humanitarian relief, educational & medical assistance to the hurting and oppressed.  We want to inspire hope and enhance human potential so they may live lives of achievement and service regardless of ones religious faith, belief, ethnic origin or background.

Partnership of People

Our Story

Our story starts way back in 1995 with a vision to make a difference in a hurting world. Our founder, Dwaine Lee, served in ministry for 60 years. During that time he visited over 100 countries and saw a great need to help suffering children. In order to help, he made friendships with people. He got to know the local churches and orphanages. Most importantly, he developed relationships with supporters like you.


This partnership of people continues to change lives around the world. 


We believe that the world's poorest kids should have the opportunity to live healthy and happy lives.

Rev. Dwaine Lee
Founder, Global Action International

Dwaine Lee, Global Action Founder


Our founder, Rev. Dwaine Lee, had a passion for God and a commitment to serving the poor.

After pastoring for over 30 years and traveling to more than 100 countries, he founded Global Action International in 1995 and Children's Christian Lifeline in 2010. His goal was to help make a direct impact in the lives of the hurting, vulnerable, and sick.

Rev. Lee passed away in 2021, but his vision lives on through our dedicated volunteers, generous supporters, and the thousands of children served by this ministry.


     I believe the following scripture to be the backbone of our commitment to make a difference in the world,

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth."  (Acts 1:8).

Just as the first Christians started out by spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to local believers and then branched out to neighboring communities and other nations, we share that commitment today.
