A small NGO making big changes in Kyrgyzstan

Kids play at Hand in Hand

What would you do if you couldn’t find the right medical treatment for your child anywhere in the country, let alone in your own community? In Kyrgyzstan, a group of concerned parents founded Hand in Hand – the first center in the country that is devoted entirely to assisting children with autism. Having demonstrated remarkable innovation throughout its partnership with GFC, Hand in Hand received a 2019 Maya Ajmera Sustainability Award earlier this year. Read more about how this small organization became a national leader in advancing the rights of children with disabilities.

How we help our partners grow stronger

Step Up partners

For more than 20 years, GFC has been funding and strengthening local groups serving children around the world. But what does it really mean to help an organization grow stronger? We asked our very own Titos Escueta to explain the term "capacity development" and why we’re changing the way we do it. In this new interview, learn more about how GFC helps its partners learn, adapt, and lead change.

For your playlist – a rising Guatemalan rap artist


Evelyn (better known by her artist name, Flaka) discovered hip hop as a young teen. But it wasn’t until she started attending programs at Coincidir, a GFC partner in Guatemala, that she gained the confidence and encouragement to use music as a vehicle for change. Today, she raps about social issues that she encounters in her daily life, particularly gender inequality. Check out Flaka’s beats in this new blog post by GFC’s Maria Creamer.
