We’ve kicked off our Celebration of Courage – a month of virtual events honoring community-based organizations – with a UK gala! If you’d like to attend our US gala on April 29, there’s still time to register by April 28. On May 6, we’ll host a global conversation on education during COVID-19, featuring young female leaders. Then, on May 20, we’ll announce the winners of the 2021 Juliette Gimon Courage Awards. Find out more about the events and register to attend.

Shifting power to the community

In the remote areas of Uganda where Foundation for Inclusive Community Help (FICH) operates, children and youth often lack access to education, health care, and technology. This GFC partner recently built a multi-purpose community center to help address these issues, and it’s taking other steps to empower the communities it serves. Learn more about FICH’s work in this video interview with Founder and Executive Director Emmy Zoomlamai.

Children and youth share their pandemic experiences

Few generations have experienced the level of disruption young people have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. GFC staff asked the kids in our lives, as well as some of the young people who participate in our local partners’ programs, to tell us about their experiences. Read what they had to say about getting through a difficult year and their hopes for a post-pandemic world.
