WHAT WE ACCOMPLISHED
Child United is a small grassroots organization founded with the belief that anyone can change the world. We strive to deliver real and lasting change to children challenged by poverty and disasters.
20+ CHILDREN SPONSORED
20,000+ RELIEF BAGS DELIVERED
550+ HOMES REBUILT
Child United provides educational opportunities and disaster relief to poverty-stricken children in developing regions around the world. Through academic resources and relief efforts, these children become empowered to grow into independent adults with the hope they will become leaders in creating a self-sustaining community.
Child United has gained national and local attention for its work. The Congressional Medal of Honor Society honored Child United’s Founder in 2011 for ‘changing the lives of the world’s poorest children. She was one of 20 people selected and is the only person in Washington State to be honored for that year.
The organization is well-known for its work overseas. What makes this organization different is they are personal. They hand-deliver donations, speak with the local community and personally interview the children in their sponsorship program. The team and its volunteers have been all around the world working in disaster situations and poverty-stricken areas.
