Sponsored children in Jackson County, Kentucky

What we do

Children Incorporated relies entirely upon our sponsors and donors in order to carry out our life-changing work. Much of our work is accomplished by way of child sponsorships. Children Incorporated maintains approximately 300 affiliated program sites in 23 countries, including the United States. At each site, we provide support to local volunteer coordinators who help nurture the children in their care, addressing their needs personally, on a case-by-case basis.

We also facilitate many donation opportunities for special programs, or to support one of our many special funds which ensure we can help children, ad their families, and the communities in which they live, facing difficult situations, like natural disasters.

Your sponsorship or gift to Children Incorporated provides children with basic  necessities like food, clothing, healthcare, and education.  Whether you choose to sponsor an individual child or to simply make a one-time donation, your partnership with us will positively impact the lives of children in need around the world!

Ways to help a child:

Children Incorporated provides for the needs of impoverished children through two primary approaches:

1. Child Sponsorship


Your sponsorship does more than feed or clothe a child- it has the potential to change lives too. Your support goes beyond helping to meet basic and critical needs today- it is an investment in the future. You are letting a child know that you care about him or her and his or her well-being. This message leaves a lasting impact on a child’s life.

Children Incorporated relies upon our donors and individual sponsors to partner with us in our efforts to provide eduction, hope, and opportunity to children around the world. Our life-changing work would not be possible without you.

Sponsor a Child


Our policy has always been to consider the needs of each sponsored children on an individual basis. Different than other child sponsorship organizations, our volunteer coordinators personally shop for the children enrolled in their respective schools, orphanages, and community center on a regular basis- and therefore, they know each individual circumstance and need.

Over 670 children are currently enrolled in our sponsorship programs in two countries: Kenya and Ethiopia. We support homes for children, orphanages, schools, and child welfare centers.

Children Incorporated has projects in Korea, the Philippines, India, and Sri Lanka helping thousands of children each year with food, clothing, and education needs.

Where We Work

Children Incorporated’s status as an international non-profit organization allows us to affiliate with already-established schools, orphanages, and childcare centers to address the specific needs of the children they serve. Each of our roughly 300 projects has its own local staff members who administer our programs on a volunteer basis. By working together, we are able to reduce our administrative costs while staying true to our vision – we serve thousands of needy children each year in 23 countries, including the United States.
