Ensure that children like Rudy grow up to be adults who can bring about positive change in their communities.
Every child has the right to a quality education and the confidence and self-esteem that comes from being included and valued.
Children must receive a good start in life in order to break away from the vicious cycle of poverty. Having life skills and social competencies enable children to transition successfully through their life stages of infancy, childhood, and young adulthood, coping effectively with the challenges each stage brings.
Children who participate in ChildFund’s programs tend to be more participatory, better nourished, and transition more easily into primary school. With ChildFund’s help, many young people are involved in activities with their community associations and have formed their own organizations to have their voices heard on regional and national levels.
