Growing up in poverty, children face tough challenges: hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and medical services, social discrimination and isolation.
We give children in poverty the tools they need to create brighter futures for themselves and their communities. With the support of our donors and sponsors, children and youth gain the skills and confidence they need to create promising futures free from poverty.
Into Employment support means every young person who wants to has the opportunity to attend college, earn technical training certificates, upskill their talents or become entrepreneurs.
Local staff and volunteers work to support our children and youth around the world in our community centers. We begin building confident youth, one at a time, by providing the basic necessities for them, their families and their communities.
Jennifer began her journey at age 4 when she joined Children International. Four years ago, she graduated from Into Employment and got her first formal job with an insurance broker in her community. Jennifer still works for the same company and was recently promoted to a managerial position, thanks to her work experience, perseverance and the skills she learned in Into Employment.
Poverty can be isolating and limiting. For work, your only options may be low-wage or temporary jobs. With the support and training that Into Employment provides, participants can increase the likelihood of a career that could truly take them places. We need you to help them write the next chapter.
