Children International Profile

While you head back to class with your new textbooks and school supplies this fall, there are kids on the other side of the world who can't even afford to go to school. Fortunately, humanitarian organizations like Children International are doing something to help them out.

Fighting Child Poverty

Children International has been helping children and their families living in poverty since 1936. Through their sponsorship program, they help kids in 11 countries - Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Mexico, the Philippines, Zambia and the US - with basic needs such as food and health care. Currently, they're helping more than 300,000 impoverished kids and their families around the world!

Children International and Sahay

Children International and its affiliate, Sahay, are working together to try and solve poverty through education. Through the help of generous donations, Children International has distributed 18,000 textbooks, valued at $450,210, to schools and colleges in Kolkata, India. Of that donation, 800 books will be donated to the Government College of Art and Craft to serve as reference books for students studying science, geography, history, health, nutrition, music, math and arts and crafts.

How You Can Help

Do your part to help fight child poverty around the world by sponsoring a child for only $22 a month. This money will go to school supplies, clothing, medical and dental care, family assistance and nutritional aid. You can also donate your old textbooks to the Sahay project and help give needy kids access to education, or buy Special Hug gifts, which are useful items that sponsored families need but can't afford, like pots, pans, bed linens and garbage cans. To find out more information on how you can help, head on over to www.children.org.
