about the children who need our help

With parents struggling to make ends meet on a few dollars a day, it is all too common for impoverished children to go to bed hungry. Their bare, calloused feet, dirt-caked faces and tattered clothes tell their story of struggle. For many, education is considered a luxury. Lacking such things as school supplies or uniforms can keep a poor child from attending school. Oftentimes, medical and dental care is unavailable or difficult to access, let alone afford. Simple ailments like diarrhea can be deadly when you are a poor child.

Children International's sponsorship program To put kids on a path out of poverty, they need programs that are as impactful as possible. Thus, we're making all of them country- and age-appropriate. No one-size-fits-all approach. We're providing kids with the specific support they need when they need it.

  • Healthy: We build a healthy foundation through access to health services and education on healthy behaviors.
  • Educated: We give kids the resources and support they need to graduate from secondary school - from fees and uniforms to supplies, tutoring and scholarships - because research has proven that is crucial.
  • Empowered: Life-skills programs provide lessons from financial literacy to social responsibility, leadership, team-building, conflict resolution and more.
  • Employed: peer education, leadership and vocational training, civic responsibility and scholarships
