Ready to lead
We often hear that young people will be the leaders of tomorrow – but 20-year-old Bahati can’t wait that long. Since she was just 12 years old, she’s been helping to mentor other children who, like her, grew up in Nairobi’s Kibera slum. Bahati also loves community theater, soccer, and acrobatics, and she just graduated from a legal awareness training program. Oh, and did we mention she founded her own nonprofit? Meet this remarkable young woman in the latest blog from GFC’s Bundie Kabanze, Program Officer for Africa.
New decade, big plans
Do you have big plans for 2020? We do! At GFC, we’re determined to make this our best year yet. And by best, we mean embracing the new decade with an unquenchable thirst to learn, take smart risks, and serve our partners better – all with the aim of advancing children’s rights worldwide. Read on for 20 things we’re excited for in 2020!
A growing, global team
Two of our newest team members have collectively lived in at least ten countries and have worked for numerous international NGOs. So it’s no surprise that they both bring a global perspective to their work at GFC, along with a deep respect for the autonomy and resilience of local communities. Check out Penda Sarr’s interview to learn about how growing up in different parts of the world has influenced her passions. Then read all about Amé Atsu David, including the experience that inspired her dedication to African children’s rights.
