local is lasting When a community is strong, its children thrive. That’s why The Global Fund for Children partners with grassroots organizations to transform the lives of vulnerable children. Whether working in a city slum, a refugee camp, or an isolated village, our grantee partners care because it is their home. They care because these are their children. Locally led, innovative, and resourceful, they understand the unique needs and obstacles that surround them. Our role is to make sure they have what they need to succeed. With your support, we are building a legacy— for children, for communities, and for the world.

welcome letter Dear Friend, At The Global Fund for Children, we believe that local is lasting. We believe in improving children’s lives for good, and we believe the best way to do that is at the grassroots level. We believe in giving social entrepreneurs the tools they need to make their communities stronger— for children, and for everyone. Every two years, we survey our grantee partners to find out how we are doing. Soliciting feedback from grantees is not standard practice among development organizations, but we believe it’s vital to understanding our impact. It is also central to ensuring the good stewardship of your donations. This year, our grantee partners once again confirmed that GFC is different from other funders. A full 91 percent of respondents agreed that we are unique because we do more than just give money—we help our partners build their capacity and become more sustainable. The survey shows that GFC’s model—a combination of program support and capacity-building services— provides significant value to grassroots organizations around the world. but what does that mean for children?

It means children have the opportunity to succeed—not only today, but also tomorrow, and for years to come. It means children can count on their own communities to provide them with safe places to learn, to play, and to grow up healthy and strong. It means that even during crises—



the global fund for children

in times of political turmoil, epidemics, and war—children have what they need to thrive. and what does that mean for you, as a gfc supporter?

It means you contribute to long-term results for children— not temporary fixes or one-size-fits-all solutions. You make sure children receive critical care on a daily basis, but you also do more than that. You invest in some of the most innovative grassroots organizations that are making this world a better place for all children. Because, like us, you believe children deserve nothing less. We hope this report reveals to you the important work made possible through your generosity. We also want to thank our outgoing board members, Sarah Perot and Sanjiv Khattri, for their many years of leadership, hard work, and commitment to GFC and to the children we serve around the globe. On behalf of the thousands of children who have been helped through their leadership, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude. We believe our task is more important today than ever before, with unrest and uncertainty impacting children’s lives throughout the world. Together, we can help build a safer, more productive civil society—not just for today’s children, but for future generations. Thank you for making our vital work possible. With our deepest appreciation,

how it works Investing in grassroots organizations has endless dividends—for children, for communities, for the world. Since 1997, The Global Fund for Children has invested $33.2 million in more than 600 grassroots organizations in 78 countries, touching the lives of more than 9 million children.

3 The children gain the ­ skills they need to prepare for a brighter future.

2 Small but powerful, the organization intervenes, providing critical programs and services.

1 Without support, children growing up on the margins of society may struggle to survive, let alone dream ­ about the future.

Child Inspired by children in the community, a local leader starts a grassroots organization— and dedicates his or her life to improving children’s lives.

traFFicKing & slaverY More people are enslaved today than at any other time in human history—and millions of them are children. Forced to be soldiers, servants, miners, and sex workers, these children live in danger and fear. That’s why our partners work courageously to prevent trafficking, to rescue enslaved children, and to help survivors heal from trauma and regain their rights. This year, we invested more than $650,000 in 41 grassroots organizations working with children who are victims of trafficking or at risk of being trafficked. MAISON DE LA GARE (MDG)

war & conFlict Children in war zones watch their communities burn, witness relatives being killed, and are forced to flee their homes. Many children are separated from their families; some are abducted by combatants and forced to be soldiers or sex slaves. In countries with long-standing wars, this is the only reality the children have ever known. This year, we invested more than $875,000 in 62 grassroots organizations working in conflict-affected areas, where they create local solutions to protect children and help them heal. TAHADDI

aDolescent girls When a girl in the developing world reaches adolescence, she is faced with divergent paths: will she stay in school, or be a child bride? Can she even afford school, and will she be safe there? Can she protect her body and her health? These are just a few of the problematic realities that girls experience in their everyday lives—so our grantees work hard to give them the opportunity to succeed. This year, we invested more than $1.3 million in 81 organizations whose programs specifically address the needs of adolescent girls. SPORTS AND LEADERSHIP TRAINING ACADEMY (SALT)

We maximize your funds to help local organizations grow bigger, better, and stronger. Your donations are about much more than money: you are building a lasting legacy for children.

3. Lead Take your impact to the next level by joining a GFC leadership council or giving circle. Among our most influential supporters, our leadership council members engage with GFC grantees and spread the word about their important work.
