About Global Dignity
Global Dignity is building a global movement rooted in our shared humanity and based on a simple idea: every single person deserves to live a life of dignity.
We are a network of leaders in over 70 countries who engage nearly one million young people across the world each year in the meaning and transformative power of dignity—everyone's inherent value.
Since Global Dignity's founding at the World Economic Forum in 2006, we have reached 2.4 million children and young people. Through our Teaching Dignity initiative in schools, universities, refugee camps, community centers and workplaces, young people—and people of any age—are inspired to embrace values of tolerance, inclusion and empathy.
Once these values are deeply understood, profound changes can take place—from stopping bullying and discrimination to healing and strengthening entire communities.
Our times demand that we do even more. We will expand our leadership network to 100 countries by the end of 2020, giving us the ability to reach well over one million people each year. We are also launching a number of initiatives to both deepen our impact and expand our reach.
Your support is critical to helping us achieve these goals.
Thank you for standing with Global Dignity as we work to build communities and a world where compassion, understanding and love triumph over intolerance, injustice and inequality.
