Children Believe breaks barriers to education so children can live and dream fearlessly.

Children Believe

Headquarters: Canada
Active: in 12 countries

Children Believe works globally to empower children to dream fearlessly, stand up for what they believe in — and be heard. For 60+ years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.

With COVID-19 threatening the health, safety and education of children, we’ve helped nearly 600,000 children and families by providing food rations; life-saving PPE and education to stop the spread of the virus; support to protect children at heightened risk of violence and education supplies to keep children learning.

Children Believe is a Canadian independent registered charity, which manages and directly funds program activities in our countries of operation. We hire nationals in our field offices, and work with local partners and community groups to ensure we’re making the biggest social impact possible. Our work is helping 900,000 children, youth, women and men change their lives.
