What We Do ?
The GYCAF is the first of it's kind climate fund dedicated to financing youth-led climate action around the world. The idea for the fund was birthed by a coalition of NGOs over a three months consultation period that involved virtual dialogues with finance experts to help curate a vehicle that supports and champions youth-led climate action. The GYCAF is a collaborative partnership between BLI Global and Drop Access.
