Mission: World of Children Award improves the lives of vulnerable children by funding and elevating the most effective changemakers for children worldwide. Since 1998, we have given cash grants to Honorees who work on the ground running sustainable program for children. All of our Honorees have a track record for success and work for little or no pay. Many are risking their lives to help vulnerable children. Our Awards are bestowed only on those individuals with the highest performance standards. An international investigative agency leads an on-site investigation and independent audit of each final nominee. We set the gold standard in child advocacy. Our Board of Governors funds all overhead costs so your support will directly benefit the children our Honorees serve.

Results: Over the past 18 years, we have provided more than $7 million to fund the vital work of more than 100 individuals serving children in over 140 countries around the world.

Target demographics: vulnerable children

Geographic areas served: International

Programs: humanitarian, medical care, education and children's rights.

I have been involved with World of Children for many years and have attended numerous events. This organization is amazing at finding and honoring non- profits around the world who are truly making an impact on vulnerable children's lives. I love how diversified their honorees are, bringing awareness to numerous causes. This is a wonderful organization where donations go directly to the children in need.

I have been a volunteer with World of Children for nearly five years and it's a wonderful organization that I'm proud to be a part of. The Word of Children Award recognizes, funds, and elevates Honoree programs doing incredible work for children around the world, providing more than $8 million in cash grants and program support to more than 100 Honorees who are the driving force behind some of the most impactful programs serving children.

I am a volunteer at World of Children Award after having had a long career in business management in both the private and public sectors. I have worked with many non-profit organizations and fund raising personnel over the years, and believe World of Children Award and its staff to be one of the most dedicated and focused I have encountered. I strongly believe in the two-fold mission of World of Children Award i.e. To bring awareness to and provide funding for organizations assisting children who live in dire and at times, life-threatening conditions. There are many communities of children throughout the world who suffer consequences from war, poverty, crime and a lack of health care services, and World of Children Award seeks to support others is remedying these situations. I believe there is no finer purpose among us at this time.

World of Children Award is an amazing non-profit with a great staff! I've been volunteering with them since July and I always look forward to seeing them every week. It's incredibly encouraging to see so much effort being put into recognizing and rewarding people who are making incredible changes in the world.

World of Children Award sets the gold standard for the nonprofit sector. I was asked to do some freelance work and my world changed! The World of Children Award staff really cares about their mission, to find those that are doing extraordinary things with their talents to assist children in dire need around the world. World of Children Award also makes sure that the Awards are going to do what the Honorees say they are going to do and check in in time to time.

World of Children Award also gives the Honorees (those helping the children) a stepping stone to receive other funding as needed. The general public hears and sees on T.V. what is happening in the world, but until you hear the stories first hand it isn't real. World of Children Award makes it real and want to help.

During my year long self-imposed sabbatical, I was hoping to find a volunteer opportunity that would allow me to be involved with causes advocating for children. And I was able to do just that by volunteering at the World of Children Award office. The team was so friendly, warm and welcoming and eager to have a helping hand - it was like being a part of a family from the get go. Their passion, drive and commitment to make a difference in millions of children across the globe is truly inspirational. There is so much work being done by this small yet mighty team all year long to help spread awareness, raise funds, and engage donors with numerous non-profits that focus on children's education, health, and social well-being. I hope to continue volunteering with this amazing team for many more years to come.

TEAM Changemakers for Children = JOY. I only had a little to give but they took that and multiplied it into strength, courage, hope, smiles and victory changing the lives of hundreds of children forever. Not only that, they also changed my life. Words cant express the impact they have. Your unimaginable accomplishments live on :)

I volunteered at the World of Children Awards this year, and I found the experience to be exceptionally moving. The thing I like best about this organization is there focus on connecting people who are deeply committed to the same end goal: to make the world a better place for children. These connections allow each and every one of these changemakers to do even more good for kids, and that just wouldn’t be possible without the World of Children Award.

I have been volunteering with World of Children for the past three years and continue to be amazed at the work that they do. Every year, they honor people from around the world that better the lives of children. World of Children understands the important work these change-makers are involved in and raises money to provide them with a monetary award so they can continue to help children. This organization ensures that the lives of children all over the world are constantly improving and that hopefully in the near future, where you live will not dictate if you live.
