Global Fund for Children partners with local organizations around the world to help children and youth reach their full potential and advance their rights.

In the fight for children’s rights, Global Fund for Children champions bold ideas that would otherwise go unheard. We are the only global nonprofit dedicated to discovering, funding, and coaching truly community-based organizations that empower children and youth.

We take smart risks that others won’t, partnering with innovative organizations that are fighting the odds in places like slums, refugee camps, and rural villages. We provide a crucial link, connecting community leaders with the professional services and support they need to succeed.

By walking alongside our partners and helping them to develop and thrive, we are building a future where all children and youth are safe, strong, and valued.
