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!
