World of Children Award Mission

We Only Fund Programs Serving Children

We are the only global recognition and funding
program that exclusively focuses on a broad range
of children’s-only issues: health (including hunger
and nutrition), education, safety, and human rights.


Global Impact

Since 1998, World of Children Award has invested $7 million in cash grants and program support to more than 100 Honorees who are the driving force behind programs serving children worldwide. Through our Honorees, we estimate that we have touched the lives of 30,000,000 children. See examples »
