About goods for good - In 2006, Melissa Kushner founded goods for good (GFG) with a firm belief that every child in the world deserves the opportunity to achieve. Since then, through the strategic provision of goods to African community centers, GFG has reached over 70,000 orphans and vulnerable children. To date, GFG has distributed 1.4 million pens, 116,200 shoes, and 23,000 school uniforms and garments. Now GFG is making those same community centers financially sustainable, by launching small on-site businesses that generate income and fund orphan care programs for education, health, and nutrition. These businesses, which include chicken farms, agriculture enterprises, and tailoring co-ops, create jobs, stimulate the local economy, and ensure Malawi’s children have every opportunity to thrive. 6:30pm VIP Reception;
