An education changes everything for a girl. Books, learning materials and access to education can be the turning point in a girl's life and empower her to pursue her dreams and escape a life of poverty. She's also more likely to avoid early marriage, delay childbirth and be a better parent, professional and earner later on. There's no better time to invest in a young girl's future than now -- our whole world benefits.
Clean, safe water from dug and drilled wells, along with public latrines and water pumps, dramatically improve community health, sanitation and agriculture. With clean water, children who would otherwise miss out on school to fetch water in dangerous conditions can remain in the classroom. This share of clean water projects minimizes the spread of diseases and protects against some of the world's leading causes of death.
Daily supplies of milk and eggs from a goat and two chicks help maintain children's health, while income from additional animals and excess provisions help meet families' needs for years to come.
Care for orphans and vulnerable children provides these girls and boys with essentials like food, shelter, education and counselling. In addition, our programs target the age-specific needs of children affected by HIV/AIDS.
Antibiotics, rehydration salts, zinc and vaccines for diseases such as measles, polio and tetanus — paired with training for health workers and parents — provide children under the age of five with vital defenses.
With two goats and a sheep, families know where their next meal will come from and can focus on financial stability. The sale of excess milk, offspring and fertilizer can help meet urgent needs and overcome poverty.
A clean water kit — including soap, a bucket and water-purifying tabs — helps maintain hygiene and health. This can be a literal lifesaver for families when they have been displaced by conflict or overwhelmed by climate disasters.
Chicks grow to produce protein-rich eggs that satisfy hungry children, while extra eggs and additional chicks can be sold to cover childhood health and wellness essentials.
Indigenous representation, perspectives and stories play a large role in providing Indigenous children with a sense of peace and acceptance. Books by Indigenous authors and illustrators support Indigenous children's learning in remote communities where access to age- and culturally appropriate reading materials is limited.
Access to mental health support is critical for the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing of children and a priority for Indigenous communities. This mental wellness app, grounded in Indigenous knowledge, is combined with local programs to support Indigenous children in enhancing their emotional and interpersonal skills in a culturally sensitive way.
