ChildFund Alliance welcomes a new member

ChildFund Alliance welcomes new member, Educo. Based in Spain, Educo is an international development NGO which also acts locally with communities to promote sustainable social change by improving the living conditions of vulnerable populations, especially children, and by acting upon the causes of poverty and inequality.

Michael Rose, chair of the board of ChildFund Alliance, made the announcement to the other members at their meeting in Copenhagen this week. “We are pleased to welcome Educo to the ChildFund Alliance. Their values and standards, the breadth and depth of their programming and the impact they make on communities, especially children, mirrors our own. Together with the other members of the ChildFund Alliance, we can reach more communities and more children in more places.”

Jose M. Faura, vice president and CEO of Educo said, “Educo are delighted to become a member of ChildFund Alliance. When we decided to expand our ambitions and horizons, we looked for an organization whose reputation, presence and impact were of the highest standard and now we have found that. We look forward to working closely with the other members and together with – and for - the children.”



ChildFund Alliance is a worldwide group of 12 child-centred development organizations working in 58 countries to implement long-lasting and meaningful changes for children and families living in poverty.

ChildFund Alliance members provide assistance to more than 15 million impoverished children and families in 58 countries. They create sustainable child-focused, community-based development programs in areas where children are impacted by war, natural disaster, poverty and global health issues.

Each member organization promotes child sponsorship as a comprehensive and meaningful approach to child development.
