Join us to celebrate a momentous occasion – Global Fund for Children’s 30th Anniversary of advancing the rights of children and youth around the world.

2024 is the 30th anniversary of Global Fund for Children’s work partnering with local leaders and changemakers around the world; partnerships that have powered the potential of millions of children and young people in all corners of the globe.

2024 will see GFC mark this milestone in a range of ways – through moments of celebration and reflection – with deep recognition of the fortitude and determination of our incredible partners around the globe; throughout this time, putting the children and young people we exist to serve, at the core of everything we do. Just like we have done every year since our incredible founder Maya Ajmera had her personal ‘moment of obligation’ on a train platform in Bhubaneswar, India.

Starting with Maya and joined by all our supporters, donors, friends, and champions over the last 30 years, we have continued to invest in the future of children, tackling challenges with solutions that are essential to the wellbeing of children and youth. All of what we do is possible because of your steadfast commitment to the power and potential of children and young people; with your belief that every child deserves a childhood.

We invite you to join us to celebrate our global movement; Stand with us in support of One World, One Childhood.
