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.

It was fitting to hear that the city is referred to as having two floors because part of our visit to the […]
