This donation gives children life-saving nutrition, healthcare, education, and livelihood support, where and when they need it the most.
Across the globe, many girls have babies before their bodies are ready. In many cases, this is due to gender-based violence and they may not be permitted to see a doctor while pregnant. Support programs that educate parents and adolescents about sexual and reproductive health and rights. This gift also provides access to healthcare for young women whose lives are in danger from childbirth.
Partner with Indigenous-led health and social services to provide a baby bundle to parents who are expecting or caring for an infant. Each kit includes diapers, wipes, lotion, clothing, a digital thermometer, warm blanket, and plush toy.
A bee suit, a hive, and training equip a farming family with tools needed to harvest honey and generate an income - to help pay for their children's food, medicine, and education.
In remote communities where ambulances are rare, bicycles give healthcare workers the ability to reach sick children with life-saving medicine and treatment. Give two wheels to help reach a child on the brink of survival.
Children fleeing conflict have been ripped from their homes, schools, and sometimes their families. Provide a child with the care they need to endure the chaos of conflict: emergency food, medicine, a clean water kit, trauma support, and access to education.
Unaccompanied children who are separated from or have lost their parents are among those displaced. These children are at extreme risk of violence, exploitation, trafficking, and health issues. Provide alternative care arrangements, family reunification services, healthcare, psycho-social support, and education for a child facing crisis alone.
Chicks grow into productive egg-layers, providing protein-rich eggs to feed a child. Extra eggs can be sold to cover health and living essentials.
Children escaping conflict are at greater risk of violence and exploitation. Support adult-supervised spaces where a child is able to play with toys and other children, access schooling and trauma counselling, and feel cared for and safe.
A Clean Water Kit – including soap, a bucket, and water-purifying tablets – helps to maintain hygiene and health. This can be a literal lifesaver for a child displaced by conflict or overwhelmed by climate disasters.
Give access to clean water! Help drill a well, install a new water pump or build a latrine for a community to reduce the spread of deadly diseases. With a clean water source nearby, children can go to school instead of walking long distances to collect water for their families.
A single cow can change a child’s life by providing protein and calcium while offering an opportunity to sell milk that finances a child’s education and healthcare.
Children displaced by conflict or climate disasters leave everything behind. Give a child a hygiene kit — loaded with basics like soap, hand sanitizer, toothpaste and toothbrushes, shampoo, and diapers — bundled with an emergency blanket, sleeping mat, tarp, and rope to make a temporary shelter.
Help a child’s farm thrive during a life-threatening drought with farming essentials. Give drought-tolerant seeds, higher yielding crops that mature quickly, irrigation tools, as well as training on planting practices for arid conditions. A literal lifesaver for children in dry regions.
Climate emergencies like drought significantly affect drier areas of the world with devastating results on food security for children. Help a child survive a drought by providing emergency food, high-nutrient peanut paste for malnutrition, and clean water.
Every girl has the right to an education. Too often, families can’t afford to keep their daughters in school and feel compelled to consider early marriage. Staying in school delays marriage and childbirth, and provides girls with an opportunity to become self-sufficient. Books, learning materials, and access to education allow a girl to pursue her dreams.
Every girl has the right to an education. Too often, families can’t afford to keep their daughters in school and feel compelled to consider early marriage.

Goats and chicks provide an essential daily supply of milk and eggs to help nourish a growing child. Livestock can be bred to expand the income of the family.
A cow and goats are the foundation of a thriving dairy farm. Vital for children, milk quenches thirst, and provides essential vitamins and minerals that can stave off malnutrition.
With two goats and a sheep, a family can focus on financial stability. The sale of milk, offspring, wool, and fertilizer can generate an income to overcome poverty.
Every day, goats provide nourishing milk to feed children. As a herd grows, excess milk and baby goats can be sold to pay for medicine, education, and living essentials.
The Healing Through the Arts program provides kits with creative supplies, such as paints, pencils, charcoal and sewing materials, along with emotional and cultural support to assist Indigenous children in strengthening mental resilience and interpersonal abilities while celebrating and revitalizing their cultural identity.

There are approximately 70 Indigenous languages currently spoken in Canada — it is projected that only three will still be spoken in 30 years. Alongside local Indigenous partners, support the creation of audio/video resources and books to revitalize Indigenous languages and help a child reclaim the connection to their spirituality, culture, and identity.
Help young women and youth in vulnerable situations gain trade-specific skills so they are prepared to enter the work force or launch their own businesses right out of school. The program also provides seed funding to kick start business development, business training, peer networks, market linkages, and technical one-on-one business support.

Antibiotics, rehydration salts, zinc, malaria medicines, 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 life-saving protection.
Providing access to culturally sensitive mental health support is a priority for many Indigenous communities. It is critical for the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing of children. Support a child to enhance their emotional and interpersonal skills with a mental wellness app combined with local programs grounded in Indigenous knowledge.
A mobile health clinic rushes medical teams, equipment and medicine to children after a climate or conflict emergency. It also travels to children in remote communities and where they have fled to displacement camps that are not close to hospitals. Provide expert emergency and primary healthcare where and when it's needed, including treatment of injuries, deadly diseases and malnutrition, vaccinations, maternal and newborn care, and mental health services.
A pig and sheep together supply warm wool, nutritious milk, high-protein nourishment, fertilizer to improve crops, and income from additional offspring to pay for children's food, education and healthcare.

Shield a child from violence and exploitation by supporting programs that work with parents, communities, schools, and governments to increase child protection services, address domestic violence, and eliminate corporal punishment.
Child, early and forced marriage ends a girl’s education, limits her ability to have a decent livelihood, forces adult responsibilities, and puts her at risk of early pregnancies and maternal death. Support work with girls, their parents, and community leaders to change social norms, helping to end this gender-based violence.
Help provide clean running water for a school and allow an entire community of children to benefit from its health impact. Clean water protects from diarrheal diseases which are leading causes of death among children.
Lunch provided at school is sometimes the only meal a child receives each day. Provide a month of school lunches for two children so they can focus on learning and not their hungry bellies.
Quality native seeds can help a farm thrive. A child and their family will also receive tools such as hoes, shovels, and watering cans, along with instruction in agriculture techniques and rich organic fertilizer to help their farm succeed.
Many children rely on livestock and crops to survive. Stock a child’s farm with seeds and fruit trees for a drought-resistant garden. Farms also receive a goat and some chicks, tools, and a water source for irrigating crops and feeding livestock.
