Looking back on a momentous year

A screenshot from the 2023 EOY recap video.

As 2023 comes to a close, it’s a time to reflect on the year that has passed. For children and young people it has been a year during which their rights and freedom have come under attack from sustained threats including climate change, conflict and instability, and a global mental health emergency. GFC has stood by our partners around the world, providing crucial flexible funding and holistic support whenever and wherever it has been needed. We will continue to do so as we move into 2024, our 30th Anniversary year. We can only do this because of you thank you for powering the potential of millions of children and young people around the world. Watch our 2023 recap video and learn more.
