Programs

Children International works to eradicate poverty by means of diverse programs that provide children access to medical and dental care, educational support, life skills and leadership trainings that empower them to create lasting and positive changes in their communities.

Education Program

Education Program

We ensure school completion and prepare youth in obtaining decent jobs through basic education assistance (school supplies, backpacks/school bags, shoes and uniform/clothes) and education supplements (tuition fee subsidy, transportation allowance, tutorial classes and vocational training). We also offer the HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty through Education) scholarship for deserving youth.
Health Program

Health Program

We provide basic health care assistance and promote healthy lifestyles. Our health services include: annual preventive medical exams; free medical for special medical needs; emergency medical aid; referrals and treatment subsidy for serious medical cases; preventive and curative dental care; anti-parasite treatment; immunizations such as for Hepatitis B; hygiene kits provision; and Pulmonary Tuberculosis Directly Observed Treatment Service (PTB DOTS) in line with our "Kick TB Program."
Nutrition Program

Nutrition Program

Our nutrition services include a nutrition rehabilitation program where we provide supplemental feeding and vitamins to malnourished children. We also teach parents fundamentals of nutrition, healthy meal preparations and information on purchasing locally available and inexpensive nutritionally whole foods. Through the organization, children also receive regular health and malnutrition screenings.
Youth Empowerment

Youth Empowerment

We design tools that help sponsored youth ages 12 to 19 make informed decisions and to better themselves, their families and communities. Children International's youth programs are designed to give the youth positive choices. Our programs include: Into Employment; Aflatoun; the HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty through Education) scholarship; Youth Health Corps; Game On!; International Youth Conference; International Youth Day; Youth Report Card; and Youth Empowerment Fund.
Product Donation

Product Donation

One project has the power to change many lives. Often, the best way to impact a poor child's life is to better the entire community where the child lives. Generous donations have made real and tangible improvements in the lives of sponsored children and their community. These projects include clean water sources, medical and dental clinics, micro-enterprise support, community centers and playgrounds. We also coordinate donations of books, medical supplies and mix commodities to various communities.
Emergency Relief

Emergency Relief

Children International has developed a family assistance program to provide relief in times of need, especially when natural disasters, such as flash floods, etc., hit our sponsored communities. We provide affected families with emergency aid such as beddings, cleaning supplies, food and eating utensils. We also help our sponsored families get back on their feet by assisting in home-repairs and giving microenterprise support. To prepare them for subsequent disasters, we equip them with information on how to deal with disasters.
