GFC Grassroots Review

GFC is the only nonprofit dedicated to identifying, funding, and coaching grassroots organizations that empower children and youth. Our monthly newsletter features the work of our partners and youth leaders, exciting GFC campaigns and events, and new initiatives.

By youth activists, for youth activists

Throughout August, we celebrated youth activism as part of our International Youth Day campaign. To help young people interested in activism but not quite sure where or how to start, GFC’s Youth Leadership Council members – young activists themselves – shared their advice. Read their powerful sentiments on youth activism, including how any young person, no matter where they are, can have influence and become a leader.

⭐️ We are officially on TikTok! And our youth leaders are front and center. Follow us and get inspired by how these young people are creating change.

Learning through play is for all ages

At a recent convening in Colombia, grassroots leaders engaged in activities that emphasized the value of learning through play. As members of GFC’s Partnership to Educate All Kids (PEAK) initiative, which is supported by the LEGO Foundation, these partners are incorporating innovative learning techniques like games, music, and storytelling to help children maintain their zest for education. Find out more about some of the learning methods spotlighted at the convening.

Our grassroots partners are the core of everything we do. They are the true heroes of change, displaying tremendous courage, passion, and commitment to transform communities and address social issues. In this video letter, we pay tribute to them.

This message is to our partners in Latin America, Europe and Eurasia, Africa, and Asia. Thank you for everything you do for children and young people.
