Youth Leadership Council hosts global webinar

Since mid-March, Global Fund for Children has been working with our community-based partners, who are uniquely positioned to protect children and youth around the world during the coronavirus pandemic. Through our Emergency Response Fund, supporters like you are helping provide grassroots organizations with the immediate resources they need to keep young people safe and healthy during COVID-19 and beyond.
Since our last update:
On June 3, Global Fund for Children's Youth Leadership Council(YLC) invited friends and supporters to hear directly from four local leaders in Kenya, India, Mexico, and Moldova who have received emergency grants. 
The panelists were joined by viewers from across the globe. The global conversation created a firsthand look into how the global pandemic is impacting children and youth and how community-led organizations are mobilizing to respond.
Recognizing the value in the diverse expertise, geographies, and experiences of GFC partners, the Youth Leadership Council created the webinar to amplify on-the-ground accounts of challenges and responses related to the pandemic.
The event was moderated by the Chair of the Youth Leadership Council, Mete.
"It's important that people understand all the different ways the coronavirus pandemic is affecting our global community. From Mexico to Kenya, and India to Moldova, there is obvious overlap, but certain issues are very contextual. I'm glad that the young people in our council could open up this space for learning between GFC partners and those who tuned in," Mete said.
The webinar sparked the interest of hundreds of partners, peer organizations, and individual supporters. One of the questions explored by participants wasWhat do you believe worries children and youth most about COVID-19? The top four responses were education(39%), physical wellbeing(20%), mental health(16%), and child abuse(14%).
