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.

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.
