We’re thrilled to announce that GFC and the Avast Foundation have launched the Spark Fund, a new fund to support youth-led and youth-focused groups around the world! Through a participatory grantmaking process, regional youth panels will make funding decisions using a unique technology platform. Learn more about the Spark Fund and how you can get involved.

Working together to empower girls

In April 2020, GFC launched the Ending Violence, Empowering Girls initiative to support a network of six women- and youth-led organizations in West Africa. These groups are addressing the root causes of violence against girls by empowering adolescent girls to advance their rights. Find out what they had to say about the initiative and how it has impacted their work.

How we find our partners
