EDUCATION // Children Global Initiative

Poor access to education is one of the greatest issues facing children in poverty because a full education is a vital component to achieving potential. Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty because of the uplifting effect it has on other aspects of society. Education stimulates economic growth, improves health, raises crop yields, reduces child marriage, lowers maternal and child deaths, and fights the spread of disease. Aside from making it easier for children to attend school and succeed there, Children Global Initiative and our local partners educate families about saving money, livelihood training, early childhood development and other important issues.

Poverty causes many issues facing children worldwide today in developing countries. however, many of these problems can be alleviated or even resolved with concentrated, collaborative efforts by our global community. Children Global Initiative focuses on these six core issues that affect children who live in poverty.

HEALTHCARE AND WELLNESS2 //Children Global Initiative

Poor access to healthcare and low standards of health are dangerous issues facing children worldwide because they are particularly vulnerable to the effects of poor health, whether they stem from malnutrition, communicable diseases or birth defects. Investing in better healthcare in developing countries is vital to helping families break the cycle of poverty. Children Global Initiative supports community-based health care to address children’s needs from infancy to young adulthood, plus prenatal care and maternal health. By providing training, funding and other support to locally based health centers, Children Global Initiative makes healthcare accessible to more children and their family members.

CLEAN WATER //Children​ Global Initiative

Nearly 1,000 children under age 5 die every day from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene.

 But we believe the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes.

 

That’s why we’re focused on providing clean water and sanitation to every woman, and child in every community we work in, including the most vulnerable populations in the hardest-to-reach places.

EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT //Children​ Global Initiative

Children’s futures depend on their early years. They need loving caregivers and safe homes, intellectual stimulation, social and educational opportunities, good nutrition and health care. Without a stable, caring and supportive environment to grow up in, a child will not grow and develop properly. Initiative's Early Childhood Development programs ensure that the youngest children start their lives in the conditions they need to live at their potential — from the beginning.

 

We promote access to early learning environments, safe and protective home and community environments, children’s and families’ access to healthcare  and nutrition

.

ADVOCACY //Children​ Global Initiative

we advocate to end violence against children. We combine our programs with efforts to encourage local and national leaders to prioritize the protection and well-being of children.

Our programs address a wide range of child protection issues, including combating the harmful practices of child labor ; unnecessary institutionalization; violence in schools. Homes and communities; corporal punishment; child marriage; and lack of birth registration , among others. Violence against children not only harms children, but it also undermines progress in other areas, including health, education and economic livelihoods.

ECONOMIC STRENGTHENING//Children​ Global Initiative

By emphasizing sustainable livelihoods, Children Global Initiative and our partners strengthen families’ economic security and self-sufficiency. We help them start their own businesses or train for marketable careers with scholarships, startup funding, tools and education, which can lead to community-wide changes and opportunities. Children Global Initiative's Village Savings and Loans groups, mentoring and entrepreneurial training all help older teens and young adults achieve better futures for themselves and their children.

All parents want to give their children a roof over their heads, food in their bellies, warm clothes, be safe and healthy,get an education, grow up financially stable, to have a good life

CHILD PROTECTION//Children​ Global Initiative

Children of all ages, nationalities, religions and cultures suffer from violence, exploitation and abuse. Those in the world’s poorest communities are especially vulnerable because they’re less likely to receive crucial support from adults. Children facing these issues are unable to exercise their other important rights — to food, shelter, adequate health services, education — which further impairs their development and perpetuates the cycle of poverty. With our local partners, Children Global Initiative  creates safe spaces where children feel nurtured and protected.

Children worldwide, across all ages, religions and cultures, suffer violence, exploitation and abuse every day

EMERGENCIES//Children​ Global Initiative

Children become more vulnerable during emergencies. Whenever disaster strikes whether it’s an earthquake, drought, typhoon or other crisis — Children Global Initiative emergency response and rehabilitation efforts focus on child protection and emotional support, in addition to traditional relief and aid. Children Global Initiative's signature Child-Centered Spaces are safe places for children to play, read and talk to trained adults about their losses. With psychosocial support, children can recover from trauma and just be children again. WE PROVIDE RELIEFto children, families and communities affected by emergencies in the form of food, clean water and other essentials, like blankets and hygiene kits. Depending on the situation, we may distribute these items directly to affected families
