OUR PROJECTS

FOUNDATIONS AND HUMANITARIAN PROJECTS

Profits realised from the currency and commodities transactions will be used by CAPITAL MERCHANT LIMITED to sponsor the foundation founded by the Chairman. This foundation is dedicated to making a positive impact on the quality of life as well as on the economy of specific global geographic areas.

The foundation, GILLIER HUMANITY, uses a two tier approach by first taking care of basic health / nutrition / clothing needs, followed by infrastructure / job / opportunities / housing / education / sports. This “hand up not hand out” philosophy will enable individuals and families in the selected areas to become self-sufficient and live productive and healthy lives while boosting productivity of the entire region.

MISSION STATEMENT: To make a positive impact on the lives and livelihood of individuals and families by providing services and education as well as economic opportunities to sustain the well-being and growth of the area. INITIAL FOCUS: Venezuela, Sri Lanka, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Fiji, Tahiti, and Las Vegas, Nevada. PROJECTS: Please see the extensive Humanitarian Project section below.

HUMANITARIAN PROJECTS

DEVELOPING COUNTRIES

MASTER PLANHealth and Economic Leverage Project (HELP)

Instead of providing “hand-outs”, GILLIER HUMANITY focuses on comprehensive, long term business opportunities to the selected developing area after the basic health and nutritional needs of the people are met. This builds self-esteem and local pride which will contribute to growth and prosperity, rather than just perpetuating a welfare state.

GILLIER HUMANITY plans to build hospitals and clinics to treat illnesses as well as preventative medicine, and also will build schools for pre-school up to 10th grade. Food, clothing and medicine will be provided for all who are in need from distribution centers, which will also create employment opportunities. Traveling doctors and nurses will be able to visit people in surrounding islands using specially designed medical boats to provide health care to people who are unable to travel to the main center.

Housing will be provided by easy-to-build kits, providing both construction jobs and the shelter itself.

Warehouses are a key element of GILLIER HUMANITY, since they will provide jobs and services for the new infrastructure (see EMPLOYMENT below).

Sports play an important role in building a sense of community as well as general fitness and mental well-being. Recreation buildings, sports domes, gymnasiums and playgrounds will provide access to various sports such as football, rugby, tennis, volleyball, basketball, and martial arts among others.

EMPLOYMENT:

Each fully-staffed location is expected to employ hundreds of personnel, making GILLIER HUMANITY one of the largest employers in each area. GILLIER HUMANITY will work with the local government to bring hotels, casinos, restaurants and other tourist destinations in to the area. GILLIER HUMANITY warehouses will provide these new facilities (as well as the hospitals, clinics, schools and athletic facilities) with various expendable supplies such as bottled water, shampoo, soap, linens and towels. These will be provided by a warehouse / distribution center and delivered daily to each facility, thus creating manufacturing, warehousing and transportation employment. In addition, the warehouses will also supply the hotels, hospitals, schools and athletic facilities with durable goods such as tables, chairs, beds, televisions, pool furniture, sporting goods, restaurant equipment, and much more.

PROFITS:

Profits will go back to GILLIER HUMANITY to fund additional opportunities in each area, as well as to provide investment capital to finance expansion into other locations in the core regions. Expansion into other countries in the future is also planned.

SUMMARY:

With capital provided by various projects, GILLIER HUMANITY is well-positioned to make a significant difference selected communities located in developing countries around the world.

PROJECTED START-UP COST AND CONSTRUCTION:

The project is expected to cost approximately $3.9 billion, which will be required in stages. Permanent jobs will be created quickly, since once the warehouses are completed, they will be used to provide supplies for the construction of future phases of all buildings in the Medical Centre / Support Center as well as all Aquaterra buildings. For example, the warehouses will supply sheets, towels, bottled water, shampoo, soap and various disposable sundry items to each hotel room, condo, hospital room, and doctor’s office in the entire complex. Green construction, renewable energy, water recycling and purification, and window wall modular construction are among the various construction techniques that will be used. Construction materials and architecture will blend harmoniously with the adjoining Aquaterra project to create a comprehensive and cohesive campus community.

SUMMARY:

Aquaterra and the Gillier Humanity International Health and Medical Centre and Support Complex will become a prototype for a complete Entertainment and Life Style Community, with an emphasis on wellness that celebrates the entire human being, through physical, emotional and spiritual balance.

This joint humanitarian / commercial project prototype can be duplicated with regional modifications throughout the world. A minimum of 50% of the profits will go to Gillier Humanity to maintain existing projects as well as expand into new geographical locations using the established standard.

 

GRAND DUCHE OF MONTE CRISTEAU

MASTER PLAN:

Located on an uninhabited large parcel with extensive shoreline, the Grand Duché of Monte Cristeau will be modeled after the principality of Monaco. Monte Cristeau is similar in physical size to Monaco and will have a similar economy, government and infrastructure. Gillier Group and Gillier Humanity have the opportunity to develop this new sovereign country from the ground up. The new country will have full United Nations’ approval and accreditation.

Gillier Humanity plans to re-create an updated Monaco, emulating the best practices of governments around the world to develop a world-class business and travel destination. All licenses and approvals are automatic since Gillier Group / Gillier Humanity will purchase the country and develop the laws.  Since this will be a new country, built on “greenfield”, every phase must be developed from “scratch”.

Gillier Humanity will develop the following: Set up the desired form of Government (constitutional monarchy), with Heads of State and Ambassadors, create a constitution, flag, banking system with gold-backed currency, have international embassies and consulate offices worldwide, and offer diplomatic missions and diplomatic immunity.

Monte Cristeau will strive to attract the following industries: Banking, Finance, Insurance, Tourism, Hospitality, Gaming, Medical, Education, Computing, Internet, E-Commerce, and Marine.

Plans include: Government Buildings and Infrastructure (government administrative offices, palace, police station and army facilities, post office. embassies, roads, sewers, telecommunication services); Commercial Enterprises (banks / warehouse banks, casinos, hotels, resorts, hospital, clinics, medical centers, schools, office buildings, business centers / call centers, gold refinery, commercial wharf / docks, Free Trade Zone, electric and water generating facilities, warehouses, helipad, churches); Entertainment venues (shopping centers, restaurants and cafes, marina / yacht harbor, health spas, sports complex, golf course, amusement park, beach club, water park, playgrounds and general parks, aquarium, cinemas, museum center); and Housing (high-rise apartment buildings, condominiums, retirement complexes, single family homes and estates – all at various price-points).

EMPLOYMENT:

The population of the entire country is expected to be approximately 30,000 people (similar to Monaco). Required skill levels will encompass every type of professional from surgeons to bankers to attorneys to executives, as well as thousands of employees such as construction workers, call-center agents, sales professionals, clerical workers, unskilled laborers, food service and maintenance personnel, among many others. It is expected that many residents will decide to retire to Monte Cristeau because of its great appeal and amenities.

PROJECTED START-UP COST:

The first phase of the project will cost $5.5 billion (to purchase the land).

REVENUE:

Revenue will be used to provide various services to the citizens of Monte Cristeau as well as to fund Humanitarian Projects and provide much-needed funds to assist targeted countries with infrastructure such as roads, water and power.
