Preventing child exploitation in Bangladesh

Children playing an outdoor game.

In Bangladesh, GFC partners Utsho Bangladesh and Shusamaj Foundation are working to address the root causes of child exploitation. They use different approaches but one common platform – local communities. Learn how both organizations are building a safer future for children by harnessing the power of strong and connected communities.

The power of youth decision-making

Spark Fund panelists speaking at the Youth Day webinar.

In celebration of International Youth Day last month, young leaders from across the world shared their experiences making grantmaking decisions as part of the Spark Fund, a participatory fund established by GFC and the Avast Foundation. These young people and their fellow Spark Fund panelists recently selected 56 youth-led and youth-focused organizations in 13 countries to become GFC partners. Hear more from these youth panelists about shifting power to young people to create change.
