Global Fund for Children’s 2021 UK Gala, hosted online, will honor the courage of community-based organizations keeping young people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will feature Omari McQueen, GFC’s 12-year-old Global Ambassador and patron; Maya Ajmera, Founder of GFC, President and CEO of the Society for Science & the Public, and Publisher of Science News; and John Hecklinger, GFC’s President and CEO. Throughout the event, there will be special guests and unique opportunities to support our work worldwide.
The UK Gala will kick off our Celebration of Courage Campaign. This month of virtual events honors the community courage changing children’s lives. It will include a US gala and a global conversation with young leaders on COVID-19, and it will culminate with the announcement of the 2021 Juliette Gimon Courage Award winners.
