UKNFS wins and receives Global Fund for Children (GFC) ‘Phoenix Fund’ grant to support and recognise the work of the UKNFS

The UKNFS is delighted to share that the Global Fund for Children (GFC) has recognised the exceptional work carried out and provided for our UK Nepali community on multiple national to local fronts. This grant ensures that across 2021 the UKNFS can continue its important work for our Nepali community. The original grant application top limit was £5,000, but in recognition of the quality, scale and effectiveness of our work at the UKNFS, including some very important national level initiatives on anti-racism, and transcultural educational resources, and beyond the GFC Committee kindly added to this amount, meaning our work can be maintained, and our initiatives supported.
