Who We Are

The GNRC is a global-scale interfaith network of organizations and individuals specifically dedicated to securing the rights and well-being of children everywhere. GNRC members come from all of the world's major religions and many other spiritual traditions. We share a commitment to making the world a place where every child can enjoy not only the right to survive, but also to thrive, making positive contributions of his or her own to a world of peace and dignity for all. We believe both prayer and action are needed to realize this vision.

The GNRC was inaugurated in May 2000 by the Arigatou Foundation, an NGO in special consultative status with ECOSOC of the United Nations. In 2012, the Foundation changed its name to Arigatou International, and it continues to support the GNRC today.

The work of the GNRC is supported by a dedicated team at the GNRC Secretariat at Arigatou International – Nairobi.
