Established in 2012, the Global Connections for Women foundation (GC4W) was created in direct response to the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and established to support women and youth in underserved communities across the globe. GC4W foundation was founded under the auspice that making a difference in the lives of others is indeed meaningful, worthwhile and deserving of the attention from those who are able to make an impact in this world. Our goal is to enrich and empower the lives of 100 thousand Women and Youth by end of 2015.
As the inaugural program of the Global Educational Fund for Disable Girls (under the GC4W Community Development and Empowerment Program), the first initiative is designed to support the Karamajiji New School Development Project for disabled girls in Karamajiji, Abuja. At present, residents of this handicapped community construct shacks in which to live and rely on begging and/or trade for provision of their daily needs. Due to the physical limitations of its inhabitants among a host of other factors, Karamajiji currently offers no facility or structure for the education of its children. This New School Development Project is intended to change that fact, and in doing so, fundamentally alter the life course of the innocent children who call Karamajiji home.
The Global Connections for Women foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization - all donations and contributions are tax-deductible.
