Room to Grow in Honduras

Amidst overcrowding concerns in schools, the Sigueatepeuque Primary School offers a spacious learning environment

Nestled in northern Central America, Honduras was once home to several Mesoamerican peoples — most notably, the Maya. This ecologically diverse land — with its rainforests, cloud forests, savannas, mountain ranges and a barrier reef system off the northern coast — teems with life.  Its wealth of natural resources is equally impressive, including a variety of minable minerals as well as agricultural exports such as coffee, tropical fruit, sugar cane and lumber. Moreover, Honduras’ growing […]

Excelling in San Pedro Sula

At the Maria Reyna Home, children from impoverished backgrounds are excellent students

Honduras’s industrial center and second-largest city, San Pedro Sula, has a reputation for being dangerous. Deemed the “murder capital of the world” for almost a decade until 2016, crime and economic distress have led to the mass migration of Honduran minors seeking safety from gangs and drug-related violence. But for those children who have no choice but to stay behind and face the harsh realities of their environment, places such as our affiliated project the […]

A Shining Light in the Culture Capital of Argentina

The Casa del Niño - Padre Kentenich Daycare Center in Buenos Aires has a bright future

Renowned for its wealth of culture, arts and beautiful European-style architecture, Buenos Aires draws thousands of tourists each year. However, there is a hidden side of the city that few tourists experience.

A Part of a Global Village

An interview with Reverend Eardley L. Mendis

I first met Reverend Eardley L. Mendis in the winter of 2019 in Chicago, Illinois at a  Children Incorporated meet-and-greet hosted by our CEO and President, Ron Carter, and myself. A long-time donor, Rev. Mendis arrived at the gathering — despite the freezing temperatures and snow-covered streets — holding a small photo album containing pictures of the Senehasa Children’s Home in Sri Lanka that he ran along with his wife in the 1970s and 80s.

For Our 55th Anniversary, Help Us Reach Our Goal of Raising $55,000

A message from our President and CEO, Ronald H. Carter

Fifty-five years ago, our founder, Jeanne Clarke Wood, aided by her father, J. Calvitt Clarke, started Children Incorporated. In honor of Mrs. Wood and the work she started 55 years ago, our goal now is to raise $55,000 for our Annual Appeal. By sending handwritten letters and making personal phone calls, Mrs. Wood located sponsors for an initial enrollment of just 95 children. Support for these young people was so generous and effective that many […]
