Congratulations to the 2023 Glocal Service Project Seed Funding Opportunity Recipient

It is our pleasure to announce that Global Citizens Initiative (GCI) has selected Kenzo, our 2023 Fellow, as a recipient of this year’s Glocal Service Project (GSP) Seed Funding Opportunity.

Tackling the UN Sustainable Development Goals of Good Health & Well-being and Reduced Inequalities, Kenzo’s project, translated as “Heart Reading,” seeks to provide affordable mental health resources to low-income families in Japan. He is currently working on sharing access to book lists and professional wellness resources, including bilingual suicide prevention training, with Japanese school teachers so that they are better equipped to respond to the challenges young people face today.

GCI’s annual GSP Seed Funding Opportunity provides grants to GCI Fellows who have developed a well-scoped and thoughtful plan to continue or expand their service projects. The competition serves to help kick-start exceptional GSPs and empower young leaders to design and implement feasible solutions towards real challenges in their local communities.
