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.

Best nonprofit organization I've ever known. The ceremony was beautiful. Their honorees are doing such amazing things and they are so incredibly humble. I spoke with most of the honorees and they have such wonderful souls. I have so much respect for what they are doing.
The entire experience was humbling.

I found out about World of Children because I liked Stephanie March, but the more I looked into the organization, the more I liked it. They are there to put a spotlight on other heroes who serve the need of children. They focus on organizations that serve the need of children. As Whitney Houston sang, "I believe the children are our future." Helping the children of today will bring a better tomorrow.

World of Children finds fresh, innovative ways to reach out and help. Each year I am amazed by the range of effective aid and the committed founders and supporters who recognize needs and opportunities that had never occurred to me. Even the easiest participation - donating - broadens and deepens my experience of reaching out.

World of Children is a great organization that allows me to support other children that are in need. It is a way for my two children to see beyond themselves and understand the needs that other children have. I love the diversity of this organization there are so many areas that they are reaching out to.

Traveling through Kathmandu several years ago we had the opportunity for a quick visit to an orphanage we had learned about from the World of Children nominees earlier that year. Mostly out of curiosity to see for ourselves the type of non-profits World of Children honored, we were awestruck by the quality of this organization. No sooner had we arrived than a young boy grabbed our hands and excitedly showed us throughout the facilities. We observed a place populated by smiling faces of healthy, eager children in a spotlessly clean environment. This gave us an awareness of how fully vetted and worthy are the honorees from World of Children.

Having this experience we now turn to the World of Children’s honorees when we make our annual charitable contributions, knowing these non-profits are well vetted and our contributions will be fully utilized for the most good. Two of our favorite choices have been: Responsibility, which is building schools and clinics in the slums of Tijuana; and Mercy and Sharing, that is building and operating quality orphanages in Haiti.

At a point in life when we have all we need or deserve, it has been most rewarding to have our five children donate to World of Children for our birthdays and Christmas presents. Besides the satisfaction that the money is being given to worthwhile causes, it eases their decision of what to give Mom and Dad. In addition, it sets an example that we hope they and their families will continue throughout their lives.

Thank you World of Children for your vision and dedication by nurturing those who are having the most positive influence on children’s lives. You have inspired and increased our appreciation for the wonderful work being done around the world.
