World Genesis Foundation partnered with UNESCO Center for Peace to launch JumpStart, a project creating opportunities for youth to work on live projects with the guidance of professors and experts, jumpstarting the missions of not-for -profit organizations and creating internet solutions. We also connected with local supporters in Arizona for a fundraising project, “Bracelets of Hope,” with much success.

World Genesis Foundation has been doing amazing work, especially in the area of supporting youth empowerment. I have really enjoyed working with them over the last year and look forward to all of the wonderful contributions that they will continue to make in the year to come!
World Genesis Foundation is an organization which not only supports and encourages youths, but also helps to express your own views on different matters. This year I participated at the Worldwide Future of Education Youth Essay Contest organized by WGF and UNESCO and had a chance to write my views, my ideas and my imagination regarding the future of education. After the submission of essay I realized how much can be done in order to change the education for the better. By organizing such remarkable competitions and programs, WGF reminds us that we should put maximum effort to make our future brighter. Moreover, people working in this organization are very responsible and supportive. They do their best in order to achieve their goals. It is my great honor to meet such an amazing team, who is working on a remarkable mission.
WGF is best non-profit organization concerning issues pertaining to education. I am the second prize winner in the essay competition organized by WGF and UNESCO. They always informed me of the schedule before time, delivered my prizes to my home in India from USA. Their punctuality, dedication to work and commitment towards creating an equal world is commendable. It empowers youths to strive for greater good of mankind. Since I am in India and very far away from USA, I could not get a chance to meet the members of WGF personally. But given a chance I would definitely meet them and become a positive changemaker in the society.
World Genesis Foundation is an amazing and incredible organization. I was a participant of its essay competition. They are fast responding, even though I am 12 hours ahead of their time, they never fail to inform me about anything to do. The competition held was also fair by announcing the term and condition in a very specific manner. Even, the winning essays were also published so that people can access and read the ideas.

WGF is one of the best non-profits I have ever encountered! They have an incredible vision to create new opportunities for underserved youth, which is an amazing cause. Over the last couple years, they have conducted so many different projects in order to engage youth. One of them was International Model United Nations, which I had the pleasure to speak at. They were able to bring together hundreds of high school students all over the world to talk about global issues and how to solve them.
I know Heather Caton, the President and CEO, of WGF. She has been my friend and mentor for over a year and has been the most amazing person I have ever worked with. Her deep passions for working with youth are 150% evident in each of her actions.
WGF is amazing and I urge everyone to share the word about them!
WGF is an incredible organization that unites people around a crucial common goal in a way that makes every individual really and truly feel that his/her contribution is invaluable. Such an appreciative and personable attitude is what make WGF particularly stand out for me. The coordinators strive to get to know YOU as an individual, which creates the collaborative atmosphere of trust within the team working on extremely significant initiatives. It is my belief that the combination of the hard work WGF is doing with the really caring attitude it has adoprted will change the world for the better!
My collaboration with World Genesis Foundation go back five years and I am delighted to write these few word in support of the organisation. Their focus and assistance to youth from across the globe. WGF is truly a testament to the excellent work that WGF does to see how our network of UNESCO Clubs has grown and garnered support from the community at large.
WGF strives to stay true to their mission of "Never leaving any child behind. We have benefited greatly on the generosity of the Leadership of WGF and look forward to strengthening the partnership to help more children around the globe.
