Imagine what the world will look and sound like when children in need are connected to the people and organizations ready to help them – more effectively than ever before.
Sponsor a Child
Sponsoring a child through Children Left Behind is the biggest contribution one can make and it requires very little. Won’t you help us make a difference in a child’s life?
Children With Disabilities
Children Left Behind is actively involved in improving the lives and education of children with intellectual and physical disabilities in developing countries.
Our vision is to see the children in a place where they have elevated themselves beyond survival, where they may flourish and have a chance to live with dignity and purpose.
A Child-Friendly World
• A world where every child is given an opportunity to receive a quality education and be allowed to make the best life they can for themselves and their family.
• A world where children are provided their basic needs, such as shelter, clean water and nutritional food to eat.
• A world where children have their medical needs met and have access to preventive medicine.
• A world free of violence against children, and where abuses such as child trafficking, child slavery, and child marriages do not exist.
• A child-friendly world where all children are safe, healthy and provided quality education.
To create, implement, and advocate child-friendly policies that ensure the holistic development and empowerment of children worldwide.
Governments, businesses, and civil society must do more to protect and provide for all children regardless of where they live, their disability or their social status.
The only way to break the cycle of poverty is for every child to receive a quality education. An education cannot be considered a quality education unless it emphasizes children’s rights and empowerment.
WHAT WE DO
Children Left Behind is a non-profit children’s humanitarian charity, committed to improving the lives of children in developing countries around the world through providing education and proper medical care.
In the US we often take education and medical care for granted because it is readily available and a normal part of our lives. Children in developing countries who are orphans, have physical or intellectual disabilities, or are from poor families, often do not have the opportunity to go to school or receive medical care.
Children Left Behind is partnered with Child Guidance Center in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana States in South India. Children Left Behind in the United States is based in Virginia and focused on Outreach & Engagement, Direct Action, and Policy & Training. Children Left Behind has strategic partners, leaders from the private, public, and non-governmental organization (NGO) sectors, and subject matter experts in a variety of areas within children’s programs internationally.
Children Left Behind believes in and is committed to improving the lives of children who are left without clean water or nutritional food, medical care, vaccines or preventative medicine, or education and vocational opportunities. We have a multi-dimensional approach encompassing prevention, protection and policy prioritization. The strategic work areas are:
