When Aaboo Varghese first started working in anti-human-trafficking, he heard story after story of women and children who were sold and abused. Instead of lapsing into hopelessness, Aaboo was inspired to help prevent these tragic stories from happening in the first place. Today, Aaboo runs Purnata, a Mumbai-based NGO where trafficking prevention is the top priority. Learn how Aaboo turned heartbreak into action.
A new vision for partnership
How can organizations like GFC create truly equitable partnerships when working with NGOs around the world? This question is central to the new Trust-Based Philanthropy Project, a five-year initiative designed to reexamine power dynamics in traditional funder-grantee relationships. Read all about why we’re joining this important project – one part of our commitment to shift power to those we aim to serve.
GFC does not support local offices or affiliates of international organizations, or efforts to support or oppose candidates for public office. We do not support evangelism or proselytizing, or programs that require adherence to or conversion to religious doctrine; organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, disability, or sexual orientation; or groups that support violent activities or violate criminal law.
Global Fund for Children (GFC) UK Trust, created in 2006, is a UK registered charity (UK charity number 1119544). We work to generate vital income, create new fundraising opportunities, and raise awareness of the invaluable work of GFC’s grassroots grantees. Our aim is to extend the reach of GFC in the United Kingdom, Europe, and beyond.
