GFS WORLD FUNDS
FOR WHICH DONATIONS ARE SOUGHT.
World Project: A World Project is chosen at each World Council. Countries are encouraged to raise funds and send as soon as possible so that the project can commence and grow. The current project is for GFS in Sri Lanka to provide English classes and work opportunities for disadvantaged young women in their country. The former project to GFS Japan to support Tsunami victims is still active and camps continue for children who live in high radiation areas. The 2008 Project to GFS Korea to provide support to North Korean women defecting to South Korea is also still very active in the Cafes Grace which GFS Korea has opened and which employ only North Korean women.
World Emergency Fund: This project is to enable the World President to provide funds to any GFS country which suffers an emergency situation. There are strict guidelines for the use of the funds and the application must be approved by the Archbishop of the country. It has been used to assist GFS Sierra Leone as they support the many victims of the 2017 Landslides and Floods. Funds are held by GFS Australia on behalf of the World Council for quick distribution.
World Travel Fund: This fund allows the World President to assist one delegate from countries without adequate funds to attend World Council. It is only for travel costs and is only granted after the council fee is paid in full by the applicant or country. The growth of GFS is in developing countries and this places further pressure on the World Travel Fund ( It is becoming increasingly difficult to fund all the developing countries.
World President's Travel Fund: This fund allows the World President to visit GFS Countries to promote GFS and to encourage and inform members in new GFS Countries.
