Leadership that will inspire you

Sonapur street scene

Anagha Khandagle is an audacious force. Through her work with the anti-trafficking NGO Purnata, Anagha has scoured red light districts, haggled with police, and confronted pimps … whatever she can do to help girls and young women to escape exploitation in India. Written by GFC’s Dhvani Doshi, this in depth-story about the search for one girl – and Anagha’s dedication to find her – will astonish you.

A grantmaking first for GFC

Now in its second year, our Adolescent Girls and Migration initiative has sparked numerous ideas about how local organizations can work together to advance the rights of migrant girls. To help those ideas turn into action, we asked our partners to work together on proposals, share them with one another, and vote on which one should get funded. Learn more about the winning project – and why we shifted the decision-making power to our partners – in this new blog post from GFC’s Vanessa Stevens.

Remembering Bob Stillman

Bob Stillman

Bob Stillman, a former Board member and Chair of GFC, passed away last month. Many will remember Bob as highly accomplished in his professional career — but at GFC, we will also remember his wisdom, warmth, and good humor. Learn more about Bob and his profound impact on GFC in a reflection from Maya Ajmera, our Founder and former President, and Greg Fields, former Managing Director.

Bringing youth voices front and center

Solomon Ndondo and Katie Fuhs

Our Youth Leadership Council is growing! We recently sat down with our newest members, Katie Fuhs and Solomon Ndondo, to get to know them better. Check out Katie’s interview to learn about her Minnesota roots, her rebellious streak, and how she’s helping to build a new generation of leaders through her work with Accountability Lab. Then read all about Solomon, who founded Africa Rise Foundation – a youth-centered nonprofit in his native Zimbabwe – and who shares his ideas for youth involvement at GFC and beyond.
