Children International is a nonprofit humanitarian organization working to eradicate poverty around the world. At Children International, we believe that every child matters and that it is simply unacceptable that over a billion children live in poverty. The CI approach is to invest in our kids and youth by providing a safe place, a caring team, and a path out of poverty through programs in health, education, empowerment, and employment. We provide this support for 220,000 children in 13 agencies working in 10 countries around the world.
The work Children International does on behalf of children in poverty is funded primarily through a one-to-one sponsorship model. We are transforming our funding model to dramatically increase the support we provide our kids. Additionally, we are taking our programs from good to great by elevating our people systems and practices worldwide. That is where you come in.
