General Federation of Women's Clubs
Since it was founded in 1890, the General Federation of Women's Clubs has been a unifying force, bringing together local women's clubs from around the country and throughout the world. In all 50 states and more than a dozen countries, GFWC members work locally to create global change. GFWC clubwomen are mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, doctors, teachers, professionals, and community leaders who are dedicated to enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.
For over six decades, the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) has supported UNICEF's efforts to ensure access to clean water, proper sanitation facilities, health services, education, and protection during emergencies to the world's most vulnerable children.
Human trafficking has been likened to modern-day slavery that subjects children, women and men to force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor. Around the world, it is estimated that 27 million people are enslaved. The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 5.5 million child victims of trafficking. This is not just a global issue- it is a local one as well. Human trafficking has been reported in all of 50 states in the U.S. The End Trafficking project is the UNICEF USA's initiative to raise awareness of child trafficking and mobilize communities to take meaningful action to help protect children. In partnership with GFWC and other groups and individuals, the End Trafficking project puts children first, aiming for a day when there are no exploited children.
The support of GFWC will enable the UNICEF USA to continue its critical work to educate Americans and mobilize communities to take action. Suppot will allow the End Trafficking project to create resources, conduct online and in-person training for youth and community members on how to recognize trafficking, advocate for stronger legislation to protect children, and train 18 Global Citizenship Fellows to educate and advocate about trafficking around the country.
