World Genesis Foundation joined UNESCO Center for Peace as well as other partners, supports and friends, in Washington “First Lady’s Youth Infusion Summit.” This program brought some of the First Ladies from Africa together with youth in creating a platform to discuss ideas and solutions, bridging minds and generations. 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 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.

World Genesis Foundation is an incredible and life changing non-for -profit organization. It helps to empower young people from marginalized and under-served regions. It gearing towards seeing that every person obtains opportunities in life. It is opening doors to many young people for them to realize that they are capable of achieving their goals and dreams.

The founder, Heather Caton, is an incredible talented selfless young leader who works to see other people are obtaining life changing opportunities. She will not stop at anything to be a mentor and a social worker. I highly recommend this Foundation.

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!

An organization who cares about youth – the messengers of our tomorrow. It cares not only about youth as general term, but about every child and young. First I heared about, than I saw it. Respect.
I hope it is readable. I am Romanian, speaking english just occasionally.

For me World Genesis Foundation is a family that make the world to be connected. I grow up learning from the activities of this organization. Now I am teaching in China and I would like to promote here World Genesis activities.

I met Heather two years ago in Annapolis for an event organized by UNESCO. She explained what she does and she gave me a her business card for me to contact her. I then researched what WGF does and decided to contact Heather to work with her. I have been a fan of WGF and the programs we organize since then. I love the board members and volunteers. They are so passionate about their work and making the world a better place.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

involve more people and advertise it

The World Genesis Foundation follows the ethical principles expected from a visionary organization connected to the United Nations. I am extremely happy to know that WGF is an organization which directs 100% of all its donations to the youth and the future. All funds are used to provide an educational platform to empower future generations. Through their inspiring projects, WGF motivates and gives the youth the opportunity to express their opinions and provoke long-lasting changes

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There aren't any significant changes I would make to the organization at the moment since it is currently going through a change at the moment. The only thing I would recommend is that WGF provide all prospective volunteers a manual or some sort which would guide and help them transition into the expectations and the daily project goals of the organization.

I am a Canadian musician who volunteered to present overtone singing workshops and to perform at Atlantykron in Romania, 2011. While there I met the extremely enthusiastic and devoted World Genesis Foundation leader, Heather Caton. I was very impressed with the level of sophistication in the topics offered for the betterment of education for young people. A wide variety of prestigious and progressive facilitators and guests made this event unforgettable.
