Collaborating across continents to prevent abuse
GFC partners Asociación Pop No’j in Guatemala and Arpan in India first met in 2017 through an initiative that brought together local leaders from around the world. Since then, they have collaborated to educate children, caregivers, and teachers on child sexual abuse prevention. Learn about their recent projects, including an online course for children, and why they believe more organizations should embrace cross-border collaboration.

Read about our commitments and what we’re doing to fulfill them.
