Global Action for Children has announced that it has received a $100,000 grant from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation to support its efforts on an Emergency Presidential Initiative for the World’s Children (EPIWC) to ensure children are not left off the agenda during the growing financial crisis, as well as its mission to make every taxpayer dollar more efficient in U.S. foreign assistance for children.
The donation is the second time the couple has given money to the organization – in 2006 they donated $1 million to improve living conditions in poverty-stricken areas around the world.
“GAC is honored to receive a second grant from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, and we greatly appreciate the Jolie-Pitt Family’s continued commitment to and support of our work,” said Jennifer Delaney, Executive Director for Global Action for Children. “With the holiday season upon us, we hope the generous gift from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation inspires others to give and focus on assisting orphans and highly vulnerable children around the world. Each and every donation can truly make a difference in the life of a child.”
More information about the organization – whose aim is to ensure that all children have access to essential health care, education, food and nutrition, and social protection – can be found at www.globalactionforchildren.org.
