How We Work

Children Incorporated partners 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, working to ensure that each sponsored child in our program is provided with clothing, food, hygiene items, school supplies, and other educational tools they need to succeed.

Our Projects Around the World

In the United States, we work in nine states, both in the inner city and in more rural areas, including Navajo Reservations. Sponsoring a child in the U.S.  provides 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 the local community.

International

We work in 22 countries in Central America, South America, Asia, and Africa. Sponsoring a child internationally provides 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 the local community.

The Gift of Opportunity

When Luis and I first set foot on the compound of the Wijewardane Children’s Home in Panadura, Sri Lanka, I was mesmerized by the beauty of the house and the property. The gravel driveway was lined with lush green bushes and red and yellow flowers, leading to an equally impressive covered front porch, which had a railing that was lined with wicker chairs. As we entered the house, I noticed that the inside was just […]
