Welcome aboard your virtual visit


Thanks for joining us on this special journey!

Here, you'll meet real people, hear their stories, and see for yourself how impoverished children are creating a better future for themselves — and for all of us.

Ready to depart? You're about to see how your support transforms lives through Children International.

Living in neglected neighborhoods

The communities where sponsored children and their families live are as richly diverse as the individuals who live in them. One thing they all have in common is poverty. Areas like the one you are about to visit in Honduras have minimal resources and are practically barren of opportunities for residents to improve their lives. See some of the daily struggles impoverished residents face.

Your invitation to visit a child

Visiting with sponsored children is a truly memorable experience. Families regularly face daily struggles that are difficult for many of us to fathom. Meeting them in person helps bridge that gap. Ashly and her grandparents, despite difficult living conditions, remain optimistic and hopeful as they endeavor to improve their lives.


Jessica shares her daily life with us

Meet sponsored youth Jessica as she takes us on a tour of her home. She introduces us to her family and shares revealing details of their daily struggles and triumphs.


Beacons of hope for 200,000+ children and their families

Bustling with energy and bright with optimism, our 67 community centers around the world are often the hub of the community. Offering safe spaces to meet friends, learn, play, develop crucial life skills, and much more, let's head inside and see what's happening in one of our Dominican Republic centers today. Yaseni, Community Center Coordinator, will be our guide.

Out of poverty and Into Employment®️

Through our employment programs, youth gain access to a wide range of opportunities and resources designed to remove the obstacles poverty has thrown in their paths. Résumé writing, mock-interviews, soft skills and technical skills, career counseling, vocational training, scholarships - these are just some of the ways youth are advancing into the formal job sector. We even connect youth with local employers seeking reliable, motivated workers.

See how our Into Employment program is helping youth reach their goals.

Thank you CI for initiating the virtual visit video program. Watching and hearing some of the young children talk openly about their families' poverty and the hardships it places upon all of its members is nothing short of heart-wrenching. Keep up the good work. We have so much to be grateful for.
