Global Rising Stars

The most marginalised children in the world are the hardest to reach; they often fall through the cracks of government services and larger organisations' programmes.

The Global Rising Stars winners listed on this page prove the power of small, grassroots organisations to create meaningful change for children in their communities.

In a partnership between Stars Foundation and The Global Fund for Children, the Global Rising Stars programme (2014 and 2015 only) awards smaller grassroots organisations that show real potential in their work to improve the lives of vulnerable children.
