Our Past World Projects


What is a World Project?

A World Project is a charitable project which is supported by GFS Worldwide.

The purpose of the World Project Fund is to assist GFS members with funding of new initiatives and for the promotion of GFS in new countries. Locally, GFS Ireland encourages all dioceses to support the project both prayerfully and financially.

How are World Projects Selected?

Part of the business of the World Council is to decide on the World Project.
