More about our work

In the United States, we work in nine states, both in inner cities and rural areas, including in the Navajo Nation. We also work in 20 countries in Central America, South America, Asia and Africa. Sponsoring a child 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. Sponsorship provides an underprivileged child with basic and education-related necessities such as food, clothing, healthcare, school supplies and tuition payments. This vital support allows vulnerable children to develop to their full potential — physically, emotionally and socially.

You can help a child living in poverty by donating to our Special Funds. Donations go towards providing support for our feeding programs, income-generating projects, skills training programs, as well as school expansions, medical clinic repairs and housing improvements.
