Talent Show Fundraiser

Every year since 2013, GLIFY has been holding a youth talent show presenting a wide variety of talent and cultures. It also is a stage where children with special needs demonstrate exceptional artistic skills. The talent show raises thousands of dollars to benefit children's causes.

​​​Support Uganda Orphanage Children

Since 2013, Global Leadership Initiative has raised $1200 per year to support three Uganda Orphanage Children James Mukisa, Miravle Nakawesa and Oliva Betty. With the sponsorship of GLI, the three children were able to be sent to foster families, and to get educated in school. Picture 1 shows GLI members Allison Dai and Hannah Cao with three orphanage children.

Friends of Children with Special Needs (FCSN)

Global Leadership sponsors FCSN annually by donating $1500 to the institution in 2018. This year GLI also volunteered at FCSN's Family Funfest on August 19, 2018.
