Alana Foundation is accepted into Elevate Children Funders Group, a global network of funders focused on children’s rights


Joining the Elevate Children Funders Group seeks to increase visibility and urgency in guaranteeing children’s rights, giving special attention to childhoods in the Global South

To be in a world where children can exercise their rights and live free and full lives. This is the premise of the Elevate Children Funders Group (ECFG), the main global network of collective financiers focused exclusively on the well-being and rights of children and adolescents, which the Alana Foundation will join from 2023 onwards.

With this membership, Alana seeks to further strengthen the childhood agenda in the Global South. “We act in the perspective of guaranteeing the rights of children and young people from countries in the Global South. Our entry into this network brings the opportunity to meet, exchange and cooperate with organizations that also act in the best interests of children and adolescents. It is also an important victory for the multiple childhoods we have here, as we want to attract investments and develop projects in partnership to guarantee our children rights that are already guaranteed in other countries, regarding fundamental issues such as the environment, social justice, climate change and digital protection”, explains Laís Fleury, Director of International Relations at Alana Foundation.

The Alana Foundation is the first Global South member of the Elevate Children Funders Group. Created in 2011, the group has 23 members currently, including the main global financiers and philanthropic consultants who finance this topic in the world.

By 2020, the network has invested more than US$1.2 billion in children causes. Now, Alana joins the network that already includes the participation of such organizations as Bernard van Leer Foundation, Childhood, Open Society Foundations, among others.
