What is GPTD?

GPTD is the Malay acronym of Grup Pengkaji Tamadun Dunia (World Civilization Research Group) formed under Global Peace Mission to train young volunteers mainly students from higher education institutions, as social and relief workers as well as researchers of world civilizations.

GPTD was founded by Tuan Haji Ahmad Azam Abdul Rahman in 2001. The idea of its establishment was purposely to offer an alternative for young generations to explore the world besides overcome social problems.

Its logo was meant to be designed from the word 'rahmat' which is in Arabic that means blessing. With the spirit of spreading the blessing towards all mankind, our volunteers shall travel all over the world.

With love and care, we treat people especially those who are in need of help. We come and serve for them in order to provide them better lives.

In preparation for the field work, these young volunteers will be equipped with basic volunteer skills and trainings. From these trainings, only those qualified are eligible to enter the main projects.

GPTD has 5 main projects namely Spain-Latin America, France-Africa, China, Cocos Island and Turkey-Central Asia.
