Juliette joined the Board when she was just 30 years old. Her wisdom, insights, and profound concern for children helped shape Global Fund for Children, changing hundreds of thousands of young lives across the globe.
Maya Ajmera, Global Fund for Children’s Founder and former President, wrote, “Juliette lived for others – not in the clichéd sense of that phrase but in the true essence of selfless love.” Read the rest of Maya’s tribute to Juliette here.
Annual awards from the fund – the Juliette Gimon Courage Awards – recognize innovative grassroots organizations anywhere in the world that are positively impacting children in especially challenging economic, cultural, political, or environmental contexts.
Some recipients will have overcome considerable obstacles to pioneer an innovation that transforms circumstances for children and youth. Others will demonstrate the courage of resilience, thriving amid unusual contextual challenges; still others will have leaders who have navigated personal hardship and channeled adversity into their organization’s cause.
We announced our inaugural Courage Award winners, Asociación Generando (ASOGEN) from Guatemala and Mavi Kalem from Turkey, on April 2, 2019.
We are profoundly grateful to Juliette for her years of leadership and dedication, and to the many generous donors who contributed to this tribute to her legacy.
