Our CEO and President John Hecklinger stands in solidarity with our partners serving migrant families and children. Read his personal reflection on their critical role in upholding human rights.

How we create and measure social change

Holding hands

We are proud to launch Global Fund for Children’s Theory of Change: an in-depth look at how we understand social change, and what we do to make it happen. Our staff, Board, partners, donors, and Youth Leadership Council all took part in this labor of love, with Carolina Koldys (Senior Officer for Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning) leading the charge. In Carolina’s new blog post, find out what we learned and what’s next.

Gerardo Lopez

Gerardo López left El Salvador when he was just 17 years old, embarking on a journey that eventually led him to an ICE detention center, and finally to our partner Homies Unidos in Los Angeles. Read Gerardo’s powerful story in his own words.
