We’re obviously in election season here in the U.S. It would be difficult not to notice all the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton political ads, the latest poll numbers for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson, and the pundits yelling to have their voices heard. All this talk might have you wondering how the changing political cycles correspond with poverty.
Children International focuses its U.S. efforts on kids living in central and southwest Little Rock, Arkansas. We work closely with the Little Rock School District and other partners to help sponsored kids break through poverty. CI supporters help us provide high-quality after-school programs, summer camps, youth leadership programs, health education initiatives and access to comprehensive dental care to sponsored kids.
