Our Work 2014
To underprivileged children with resources to help break the cycle of poverty and give a child hope for a brighter tomorrow.
How you can help
Your gift to Children Incorporated will provide the children in our programs with basic life-saving necessities like food, clothing, healthcare, and education. Whether you choose to sponsor an individual child or simply to make a one-time donation, your partnership with us will positively impact the lives of children in need around the world!
How your sponsorship makes a differenceWe have found that this goal is best accomplished by combining your donations with those of other donors who sponsor children enrolled in the same program; this strategy helps funds go further toward the children’s benefit. Our policy has always been that the needs of sponsored children are met first and foremost, with any remaining funds being used at the project coordinator’s discretion to aid as many needy children enrolled in each program as possible.
Children Incorporated goes a step further than most other sponsorship agencies in that many of our coordinators personally shop for the children enrolled in their respective schools and community centers. Through this personal approach, our coordinators continue to change and improve lives of underprivileged children in their care.
Corresponding with the childrenCorresponding with your sponsored child is a delightful experience. Within the brochure about your sponsored child is your child’s correspondence address. Our project volunteers will translate your letters, if necessary, and deliver them to your sponsored child. When your sponsored child writes to you, his or her letters will be translated (if necessary) at our Richmond office and forwarded on to you. If your child is too young to write, or has a disability either a project coordinator or a parent will write or assist with the letter. Please note that mail service in remote areas can be very slow so letters may take some time to get back and forth.
2. Special Projects
Our special projects expand our reach beyond our sponsorship program
Pinagpala Feeding Program in the Philippines
Providing food for children after school on a regular basis so they can strive as individuals in their learning environment. Donate to our Pingpala Feeding Program
Medications for children in KenyaDonate to our Warm Clothing Fund
In Kenya, children are in need of mosquito nets to protect them from disease so they are healthy enough to attend school.
Back to School Fund
Back to school is one of the hardest times of the years for children. Contributions to the Back to School fund help children receive additional clothes and school supplies so they are ready for the school year!
Back Pack Feeding
In the U.S., many children go home after school or on the weekends and do not have food to eat. Our back pack feeding fund allows coordinators to purchase additional food for children who are struggling desperately.
Here in our own country nearly 22% of all children live in poverty. Children Incorporated is working to make a difference in their lives across 11 states and the District of Columbia. Over 4,800 children and youth are currently enrolled in our sponsorship program, and our special programs reach almost 10,000 children and youth each year.
Over 1520 children are currently enrolled in our sponsorship programs in eight countries (all minus Panama, Venezuela, the Guyana’s, Surinam). We support homes, schools, child welfare centers, and special projects such as teaching vegetable home production, nutritional programs, and self-sustainability programs at a supported child-family level.
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. Special projects funded include infrastructure for new schools, medical clinics, dorms, water distribution, nutritional programs, preventive medicine and practice.
Children Incorporated has projects in Korea, the Philippines, India, and Sri Lanka helping thousands of child each year with food, clothing, and education needs.
