How We Work

Children Incorporated partners with already-established schools, orphanages, homes, and childcare centers to address the specific needs of the children they serve. Each of our roughly 300 projects has its own local staff member who administers our program on a volunteer basis.

Our on-site volunteer coordinators at each of our project sites work to ensure that every child enrolled in our program is provided with clothing, food, hygiene items, school supplies, and other educational tools on a regular basis.

Our Projects Around the World

Sponsoring a child in the U.S. provides basic necessities to him or her, such as food, clothing, healthcare, and an education. These essentials, so often taken for granted, are vital to a child’s growth – both as an individual and as a contributing member of their local community.

International

We work in 22 countries in Central America, South America, Asia, and Africa. Sponsoring a child internationally provides him or her with basic necessities such as food, clothing, healthcare, and an education. These essentials, so often taken for granted, are vital to a child’s growth – both as an individual and as a contributing member of their local community.

Stories from our International Projects

A Haven in Colombo

The country of Sri Lanka has always valued the importance of learning, and even more so after gaining their independence from Britain in 1948. Since then, the government has made education a high priority, and it has paid off. The literacy rate is over ninety percent – the highest in all of South Asia – and enrollment in school for both boys and girls is just as high. This is in large part due to […]
