A month of virtual events celebrating community courage

WHERE

Online

At Global Fund for Children, we place children, youth, and community leaders at the heart of everything we do, harnessing their power and wisdom to change the world. Please join us in celebrating the courageous yet unsung heroes who create lasting change in children’s lives.

Our 2021 Celebration of Courage Campaign is a monthlong series of virtual events to honor the resilience of community-based organizations keeping young people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic and building a brighter future beyond it.

The campaign will begin with galas in the United Kingdom and the United States, showcasing the voices of local heroes and unique opportunities to support our work. Next, youth from Bangladesh, Honduras, Kenya, Malawi, and Nicaragua will host a global conversation on education during COVID-19.

The campaign will culminate with the announcement of the 2021 Juliette Gimon Courage Awards, honoring organizations that are positively impacting children under especially difficult circumstances. The closing event will celebrate this year’s winners and recognize their perseverance in the fight for children’s rights and protection.
