Working with the mission to advance the dignity of children worldwide, the foundation supports most promising organizations operating in marginalized communities. The Fund transforms the lives of children on the edges of society—trafficked children, refugees, child laborers—and helps them regain their rights and pursue their dreams.
Since its founding, the Global Fund for Children has supported 9 million children so far. The impact is thousands of children are going to school instead of to work; thousands more protecting themselves from HIV, escaping the bonds of slavery, and getting the childhood they deserve.
