Children are the Future

We are a small non-profit organization made entirely of volunteers who believe that giving every child and young adult education and the opportunity to develop their potential is the key to breaking the vicious circle of poverty. We believe in people-to-people partnerships of solidarity and rely entirely on the generosity of people like you, and the work of reliable partner non-profit organisations in the field to achieve our objectives. Any donation we receive contributes directly to offer a child or young adult a better future.

'Children are the Future' was launched in response to a severe cyclone that hit the coast of the Tamil Nadu region in India on the 29th of November 2000. Twenty years after, the same area experienced another major windstorm, cyclone Burevi. As a result, floods damaged some villages in the areas where our local partners operate. Many children, their families, and homes are affected, making the already difficult situation even worst. Due to Covid-19 children are confined to their families' homes, more households are falling into monetary poverty. Emotionally, these are puzzling times for many children. A situation like this makes your support and that of our local partners particularly important. THANK YOU ... See MoreSee Less
