About the GNRC
GNRC is a global interfaith network of organizations and individuals dedicated to securing the rights and well-being of children everywhere. GNRC members are volunteers and come from all the world’s major religions and many other spiritual traditions. GNRC members are committed to creating a world where every girl and boy can grow up safe and sound — a world where every child has the chance to shine.
The GNRC was inaugurated in May 2000 by the late Rev. Takeyasu Miyamoto, then-President of Arigatou International, when he invited religious leaders from around the world to Tokyo, advocating for greater interfaith cooperation for children. This was the first global forum of the GNRC.
Every four or five years since then, GNRC global forums have brought together GNRC members, religious and civil society leaders, and children and young people to advance the work of the network. The GNRC Secretariat is operated by Arigatou International – Nairobi, which provides technical assistance to GNRC members, promotes their activities, and coordinates their efforts to build a better world for children.
