Our Story Sunflower Global was co-founded in 2016 by Gianna Biaggi, of Sonoma, California, and Rukia Sebit, of Nairobi, Kenya, two women dedicated to building a more inclusive world for all children. Sunflower Global was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2016, and has already received funding from the Kathryn McQuade Foundation, the Girls Rights Project, and four other foundations. In April 2017, Gianna Biaggi was awarded the Samuel Huntington Public Service Award, a national prize given annually to a college senior to pursue public service, on behalf of Sunflower Global.
