The two winning organizations have demonstrated incredible resilience in the face of adverse political and social contexts. Their work has advanced children’s education and protection, girls’ empowerment, and youth’s sexual and reproductive rights.
Among the 12 award finalists are leaders who have endured bomb threats, stood up to the Taliban, and defied deeply engrained practices like FGM and child marriage. They have channeled adversity into their causes, boldly pursuing justice for children worldwide.
Global Fund for Children will make the awards through the Juliette Gimon Fund for Courageous Leadership – a more than $1 million endowment made possible by William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and other donors – in honor of Juliette Gimon.
A former Board Chair of Global Fund for Children, Juliette passed away on February 24, 2018. Her wisdom, insights, and profound concern for children helped shape Global Fund for Children, changing hundreds of thousands of young lives across the globe.
