Change the lives of children and youth today

Our mission is to address the root causes and consequences of violence and poverty through education and health programs that empower youth and communities, and strengthen public systems. At Glasswing, we believe that every person has both the potential and the right to thrive, no matter what adversity they face. We engage thousands of volunteers to ensure sustainable change, while fostering hope and community pride.

Our programs engage members of communities, deepening our impact. Since 2007, we have directed more than $180M in funds toward health and education programs and impacted the lives of more than 3 million people.
