Please join us for our GEANCO Family Reunion Gala on Friday, Oct. 29 as we gather to support those in great need!
For your safety and comfort, we will follow all local & state health guidelines for this event. The evening's reception will include an outdoor space with stunning views of Los Angeles. Our program seating in the ballroom will be socially distanced, with lots of elbow room between you and other guests.
We ask all guests, vendors & volunteers to come with proof of vaccination or a negative covid test (within 72 hours). Masks will be required indoors unless drinking or eating.
The GEANCO Foundation saves and transforms lives in Africa. We lead complex surgical missions and run an innovative program to fight anemia. At our modern, solar-powered rural maternal clinics, poor, vulnerable pregnant women safely deliver healthy babies.
We also provide full tuition, medical care, and social support to young female victims of terrorism and gender inequality in Nigeria.
We proudly count among our supporters Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie, Benedict Cumberbatch, Charlize Theron, David Oyelowo, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Chris Rock, Zoe Saldana, Rachel Brosnahan, Jimmy Kimmel, Thandie Newton, Tyrese, Andrew Garfield, Jeff Daniels, Daisy Ridley, Forest Whitaker, Yvonne Orji, Uzo Aduba, Cynthia Erivo, Bryan Cranston, Steven Soderbergh, The Oscars, Disney, Fox Studios, Google, Showtime Networks, and Netflix.
Event proceeds will fund our David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship for Girls and will underwrite our next surgical mission to Nigeria.
