It is our hope and prayer that we will all have equal representation in the GA and we will all have the chance to experience participating in the GA. In April, we have already requested you to begin raising funds to support your delegates. We acknowledge that opportunities and conditions are not the same for all. To help movements and delegates especially those coming from the farthest location, we offer Scholarships to support up to 70% of the airfare cost of the official delegates.
The GA Solidarity Fund is a fund collected from the contributions of senior friends, partners, movements, individual contributing to the All In One Boat Campaign and well-wishers which aims provide a solidarity platform for those who wants to help our students participate in the GA.
