Peer counseling by young people in Ukraine

It has been one year since Russia invaded Ukraine, and young Ukrainians haven’t stopped lending their voices and hands to those affected. Amidst power outages and other wartime hardships, GFC partner Teenergizer is continuing to offer peer counseling sessions to teenagers and provide vital support to youth living with HIV. Read more about Teenergizer’s work, including their advocacy to increase youth access to mental health treatment.

This month, GFC launched a youth-led climate resilience fund in Southeast Asia, one of the world’s most at-risk regions for the impacts of climate change. The Southeast Asia Climate Spark Fund will empower youth-led climate action in Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, placing key funding decisions in the hands of young people. We cannot wait to see all that they will accomplish! Learn more about the climate resilience fund.
