WHERE
WE
WORK

We promote inclusion

In India, gender inequality and caste-based (class) discrimination perpetuate social exclusion, especially among women and girls. So, we specialize in gender and social inclusion to tackle these deep-rooted barriers to positive change. We use education as a tool to end child marriage, child labour and other harmful practices, encouraging young people to speak up to protect their rights.

You ask. We answer. Happily.
– equal access to opportunities and resources, such as clean water, healthcare and quality education
– confidence, knowledge and leadership skills to realize their rights
– opportunities to have their voices heard through community clubs, public forums and our sponsorship programming
– the tools to play an active role in improving the systems that are supposed to protect them
And, letters sent between donor and sponsored child contribute to building a child’s confidence, so they’re encouraged to create a brighter future for themselves.
Trust and accountability are very important to us. Children Believe uses results-based management to measure and evaluate everything we do. This ensures we’re accountable to you and can achieve the greatest change for children.
As a commitment to our Christian faith principles, we want every child to feel excited and proud our name represents them and every person to feel inspired and welcome to join our cause.
