GCF funds the construction of facilities and programs to assist people with job opportunities, training, and life-skills preparation for adults and children with barriers to a quality life. It provide resources to GIENC and other organizations that enable them to provide programs, facilities, training, and life-skills opportunities for people who desire a better life.
