Mission: World Genesis Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization committed to a mission to "leave no child without hope for the future." The foundation works in cooperation with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and other partners throughout the world in an effort to create opportunities for youth in areas where opportunities may be limited or unavailable today.
Results: Just this past year some of our projects included a Robotics Project and Competition (Earth Rover) which involved multiple Universities in the Ukraine, Moldova and Romania and reached over 10,000 youth. We also have been active with a very unique Learning Academy “Atlantykron” going on its 24th year this academy brings 400 youth, professors, and experts in their field, together for a 10 day learning program in a natural environment. 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.
Target demographics: Our focus, apart from the alleviation of all kinds of suffering, is to create opportunities for the moral, physical and intellectual development of youth in areas of the world where opportunities are limited or do not exist today.

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.

I knew World Genesis Foundation in 2011 through Tinada Youth Group (TIYO) - Kenya, where I work as the Programs Coordinator. We are collaborating with World Genesis Foundation in Jump Start Program where they helps accelerate the success of missions of hope by developing and designing a professional internet solutions to grassroots community based organization globally who cannot achieve website development/ online visibility . WGF through Jumpstart program sponsored the development of TINADA YOUTH website which are in development stages with better progress. I congratulate Heather Caton (CEO and the president), Dave and the whole teams for being determine and focused to child and youth development supporting visibility of organization with no aaccess. I personally recognize from inception the effective coordination, functional structures and linkages of WGF between policies, programs and resources.
Am passionate about WGF for dedication of young people role in development. I believe that with WGF passion, resilience and creativity, young people can change the world for the better. I can’t hesitate to recommend individuals, welwishers, partners and supporters to be part of this visionary organization to help them achieve their goals.
i will highly appreciate any support accorded to World Genesis Foundation in enhancing and contributing towards their international child and youth programs Including Social Work ,Education ,Arts, Cultural Awareness, Humanities, Jumpstart program, Social, Natural Sciences and Leadership Skills

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

Participate in their international forums, volunteer in their programs and link and recommend their work to other organization/partners for collaboration towards supporting WGF programs for the betterment of the world.

I came across this organization at Atlantykron, a summer camp where they participate and make courses. I can honestly say their members are some of the best persons I met and that I will always be sure that a project they take care of will be a great one, because they are dedicated, hard working, motivated, brilliant and professionals. I was amazed by the amount of energy they put into their work and how they communicated with the participants. I, for one, have had interactions with many NGO's and foundations, but World Genesis is the first one that comes in mind when thinking of the impact they have on everyone's life, in a good way.

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

Donate more money, they deserve it!
