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.

World of Children is a great organization. They find and fund the most worthy causes, from girl's education in Uganda to health projects in Nepal. I feel great supporting them knowing that 100% of my donation goes to projects on the ground helping children throughout the world. It doesn't get any better than that!

World of Children.
It is that organisation that takes private initiatives very seriously, because they acknowledge that helping children in any circumstances is important, regardless on what scale. Thanks to World Of Children, people of all walks of life are encouraged to use their talents to improve the lives of children. And how! The latest visit by founders Mr and Ms Leibowitz and celebrity ambassador Stephanie March to the projects of Award Honorees Dr. Ashok Banskota (2012) and Douglas Maclagan.(2009) in Nepal clearly proved how well-deserved the awards were for these selfless, ingenious heros, as can be seen on www.worldofchildren.org .

With the great initiative to award charity projects that are focused on children, World of Children keeps reminding us that helping the vulnerable is the obvious thing to do.
All nominees should be regarded as inspirational examples of humaneness and selflessness that are brought to light, thanks to World of Children!

We all know that children are vunerable in all dire circumstances. They are the first to suffer in disasters and defenseless when being taken advantage of. World Of Children encourages people from all walks of life to enhance the quality of life for children, no matter where they live. They support a wide spectrum of projects, which are all beneficial to children. Not only do they award individuals that really try to make a difference in childrens’lives, but also, they visit the projects of the award winners. World of Children inspires anyone to reach out to children in need. That’s what makes World of Children such a valuable organisation.

By looking at only a few of the activities the World of Children does, it is obvious that this organization is made up of passionate workers who care not only about the children in their lives, but the children in need all around the globe. From Ukraine to Nepal to the U.S., these people are making a difference everywhere, and helping children we don't necessarily hear about in the daily news. I am continually impressed by the reach and fervor of this organization.
