Please note that we do not have the resources to engage with individuals or correspond about individual needs or scholarships. GULL only works with groups of people through affiliated organizations.

3. Impact Tracking

Impact tracking is a mandatory requirement as it enables user organizations to identify what is going well and where corrective action might be necessary.
