EMPOWER A CHiLD
Help raise up the next generation of leaders
CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE
This familiar saying sums up our purpose: to transform vulnerable children from victims of poverty into champions of change.
OUR PROVEN FORMULA IS SIMPLE
We develop the whole child
Education sharpens the mind and opens up opportunities in life.
Medical services and nutritious food lets the children focus on their growth.
All leaders must learn about integrity, values, and healthy relationships.
Vocational development allows the children to find a job or start a business.
We’ve been following this formula since 1974, and it works!
A life transformed in Uganda
Growing up as an orphan, Gertrude had a very difficult life. She joined the International Needs program at 10 years old, finished primary school, high school, and finally university. She is now serving as a teacher at a prestigious school in Uganda. Congratulations!
Gertrude is just one example of a child whose life was forever changed. We have hundreds of stories just like this!
THE STORY GETS BETTER
There’s a spillover effect
We’ve found that when we work with children, their families and entire communities benefit too. This program has a long-reaching impact that goes beyond a single life.
THEN CAME COVID
…and everything changed!
Lockdowns, food shortages, and hyper-inflation have been disproportionately hard on people living in poverty. These conditions made us wonder: How can we empower more children?
Our answer was…The Village
A community of generous monthly givers
The Village already has thousands of members who have joined us on our mission to transform young lives.
WORD ON THE STREET
“My favorite part is watching the children grow and mature. I’ve also given gifts in the name of my children and grandchildren as a way of modeling love in action.”

IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO FIGHT INJUSTICE
There’s strength in numbers
With your help, some of the most at-risk children in the world will discover that they have unique value, a clear purpose, and an exciting path out of poverty.
Doing nothing is not an option!
GIVE WHAT YOU CAN
Every dollar helps
The cost to support one child is $45 a month, but there’s no monthly minimum to be a member of The Village. Some donors contribute $50, $100, or even $2000 a month, while some give less. When you become a member, you get to pick a monthly amount that suits your budget.
100% goes to the kids!
Give with confidence
We have a few generous donors who pay all our support costs. This means every dollar you give is used to transform a life.
WHY you MATTER
Poverty can be a powerful force, but only if WE let it win. Children are the world’s most vulnerable citizens, but they’re also the ones with the most potential. We’re not satisfied to let young girls be married off at 12 years old because mom and dad need the dowry. We get angry when young boys get caught up in gangs, crime, and forced labor because they don’t know any better.
When we join forces and come together as a global community we’re standing against injustice, rejecting the power of poverty, and making the world a much better place for children who otherwise don’t stand a chance. That’s what’s exciting about the village, and we know you want to make a difference too!

Remember, you get to decide how much to give each month
