10 Global Program Goals

The main problems Filipino children face include malnutrition, school desertion, drug addiction, violence, family disintegration and abandonment. Children International endeavors to provide solutions to these problems by offering integral programs that promote the participation of all community members to improve their quality of life.

Our Ten Global Program Goals reflect Children International’s vision that each sponsored child will grow into a healthy, educated and self-reliant adult.
