Students in New Orleans Love Their Sponsors

Students at Schaumburg Elementary School in New Orleans, including Desiree*, love their sponsors. Desiree has a wonderful sponsor who sends her letters, pictures, and postcards from her travels that open her eyes to the world outside of her neighborhood. At the beginning of each school year, Desiree’s sponsor makes her a picture book so that she can see and learn about new places. We are so grateful for the investment that sponsors make in the lives […]

Kids in New Mexico Can’t Thank You Enough

Navajo children enrolled in our program are so thankful for your support! Many children at our affiliated schools in New Mexico live in remote areas down dirt roads that are difficult to access, especially after rain or snow. As a result, these children usually live in dorms during the week at the schools they attend. Sponsorship enables them to have items such as shampoo, toothpaste, detergent, bedding, and other living essentials while they are away from […]

A Big School Making a Big Impact

A newer elementary school in Kentucky is helping a huge number of kids

Located in the town of Owingsville in Kentucky’s Bath County, Crossroads Elementary School is a consolidation of two of Children Incorporated’s former affiliated schools – Bethel and Salt Lick Elementary Schools.

India and Sri Lanka are both full of beauty, diverse cultures, and wonderful people who face extreme hardship every day. Sri Lanka has suffered greatly from natural disasters and decades of civil war; India […]

The History of Our Partnerships in Kentucky

Owingsville Elementary School is one of the first schools to receive its own Family Resource and Youth Services Center

We couldn’t do what we do without the help of our partners. At every one of our projects, whether it is an orphanage in South Korea, a community center in Costa Rica, or a school in New Mexico, without our affiliated projects or the volunteer coordinators who oversee our program at each location, we would not be able to provide support for some of the poorest children in the world. One of our most important […]

Educating a Nation

Girls need to be educated to break the cycle of poverty in India

It is an unfortunate reality that even in modern times, girls have fewer opportunities than boys when it comes to receiving an education. Girls all over the world face discrimination within their cultures. They are typically seen as unequal to boys, and there is therefore an absence of emphasis on educating them.
