Empower a Child
More than 1 billion children are stuck in the cycle of poverty. You are helping to change this.
International Needs is an inter-denominational Christian development organization with a global network of more than 30 partner countries.
We support initiatives that equip children with an education, healthy food, medical care, Christian foundations, and life skills training.
As we empower, children and their families begin to walk in freedom from poverty, sickness, and injustice.
We focus on long-term development, with the hope that one day, our help won’t be needed anymore.
How Your Gifts Are Used To Empower Children
Education is at the core of our work, and it’s a poverty game-changer!
Health and Nutrition
Medical treatment and daily balanced meals help the children learn.
We teach the children about integrity, values, child rights, and relationships.
Older children learn the skills and trades they need to find a job or start a business.
We also tackle critical projects and programs that improve the lives of children by supporting their families, schools, and communities, such as parental skills training, clean water, school expansions, medical clinics.
Stories of Transformation
As an orphan, Gertrude had no hope of education. IN Uganda’s child assistance program enabled her to go to school at age 10, where she received nutritious meals, medication, life skills training, and career guidance. After 14 years of loving support and mentorship from IN, Gertrude graduated with a bachelor’s degree of Education in Economics from Kyambogo University and is now employed as a teacher at a prestigious secondary school in Uganda.
Samuel's family lived from hand to mouth for many years, and the constant struggle to survive meant they couldn't afford to send him to school. Then he received assistance to attend IN's Amrahia Community School, and today he's training to be a doctor at the University of Ghana Medical school. He also gives back to the school by inspiring other young children with his story of hope.
Baby Doria (Kenya)
Doria was abandoned at birth, dumped into the bottom of a latrine in Kawangware slum by her teenaged mother. When they heard Doria crying, our team broke through the stone, pulled her out, and rushed her to hospital, where she stayed for three months with an infection she got after ingesting feces. Today, she's happy and healthy!
Hari is 26 years old and a mother of one child. Her husband suffers from hemophilia, which led to the amputation of his right leg. This has made it very difficult for him to find work. Understanding that she needed to take action, Hari enrolled in the sewing program at the Lydia Vocational Training Centre. Her goal is to start a tailoring business when she graduates that generates income to support her family and give her child a good education and future.
Your financial support will help some of the most at-risk children in the world discover that they have unique value, a clear purpose, and a path out of poverty.
