In 2012, 91 GSK employees spent up to six months with 51 non-profits and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in 26 countries in our PULSE program. These volunteers brought needed expertise to organizations working to address serious societal challenges in the health, education and the environment.

In this blog, PULSE volunteer Binita reflects on her experiences with Jhpiego in Ghana.

Since the launch of PULSE in 2009, nearly 300 GSK employees from 33 different countries have volunteered with 70 NGOs in 49 countries. PULSE was recently awarded the "Inspiring Practices" award by the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE).

GlaxoSmithKline – one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare companies – is committed to improving the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer.  For further information go to us.gsk.com, follow us on twitter.com/GSKUS or visit our blog(www.morethanmedicine.us.gsk.com/blog/).
