Demanding freedom from fear

Keyla leads protest in Honduras

Growing up in Honduras, Keyla lived in fear of the gangs – called maras – that ruled the streets with violence and harassment. But instead of giving up, she has dedicated her career to supporting her community and changing it for the better. Today, with the help of a GFC partner, 24-year-old Keyla is a human rights lawyer. “We all have the right to study, to dream, to live without fear. And I did not come into this world to conform or to please anyone.” Read her powerful story in her own words.

Reports from the field on children and COVID-19

Youth Leadership Council webinar

Earlier this month, viewers from around the world tuned in to a GFC webinar to learn about the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on children and youth. Hosted by our Youth Leadership Council, the webinar featured four leaders from GFC partner organizations in Kenya, India, Mexico, and Moldova. The panelists discussed how the virus intersects with other challenges in their communities, including racism, migration, poverty, and child marriage, and how they are adapting to keep children safe. Read a recap of the event and watch the full webinar.
