Sponsor a Child. Special Program of Solidary Foundation:
With your child sponsorship gift, you can make it possible for your sponsored child and his or her family to benefit from our programs. Child sponsorship is the best way to help a child, family and community build a future free from poverty.
Sponsorship connects you with one needy child in a developing country. That little boy or girl becomes your ambassador to a place and culture you might otherwise never know. Through small gifts you’ll get to know your sponsored child and be a part of his or her life.
Join support Solidary Foundation works for a better world for children.
About Solidary Foundation:
We are an independent, not-for-profit organization without political agenda or religious orientation.
Children and their families directly benefit from our grassroots, self-help programs in health, education, water and sanitation, income-generation and cross-cultural communication. Indirect beneficiaries include people living in communities working with Solidary Foundation.
We work to provide a better world for children now and in the long-term future. We make this happen by putting children’s needs and concerns at the center of all our programs and encouraging children to participate and contribute their ideas and opinions so they are truly heard in their community.
Our vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people's rights and dignity.
Solidary Foundation strives to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of deprived children in developing countries by:
Enabling deprived children, their families and their communities to meet basic needs and to increase their ability to participate in and benefit from their societies;
Fostering relationships to increase understanding and unity among peoples of different cultures and countries; and
Promoting the rights and interests of the world’s children.
Solidary Foundation's work is made possible thanks to people in 18 donor countries who support us by sponsoring a child as well as through donations from individuals, corporations and foundations, grants, and strategic partnerships with other organizations.
What We Do:
Solidary Foundation is a child-centered organization. We work at the grassroots level with the active participation of children, their families and their communities.
We involve children in all aspects of our programs. Projects are planned, implemented, and their results are evaluated at the level of the child. Families and communities contribute as much as they can of their time, labor, and their funds a value that can amount to more than half of project costs.
Designing programs at the level of the child, we can better see the complex web of causes and effects that impact a child’s life, and respond with programs in five interrelated areas Growing Up Healthy, Learning, Habitat, Livelihood, and Building Relationships.
Our Five Key Program Areas:
1. Growing Up Healthy:
Ensuring children have the means and the knowledge to grow up healthy is a core part of our program. Yet in the poorest communities the odds are stacked against children. We work to ensure the children's very survival. We fight for their protection and their healthy development. Inseparable from this work is ensuring the reproductive health of adolescents and adults, especially women of child-bearing age.
We want all children, adolescents and adults to acquire basic learning and life skills so as to contribute to the development of their communities. We teach parents the importance of an education for the benefit of their children and the future of their communities.
For children to reach their full potential they need to live in safe and healthy homes and neighborhoods—"habitats." We work with children, their families and communities to focus and act on children’s habitat needs, from home construction to safe drinking water and waste disposal.
This domain addresses the root cause of poverty and ensures that the improved financial position of families leads to increased economic and social benefits for their children. We have award-winning strategies that help parents—especially mothers—with poverty-busting credit and small business development programs.
5. Building Relationships:
Increasing understanding and unity among people of different cultures and countries is a goal that we take very seriously. We passionately promote the rights and interests of the world’s children. With caring donors in industrialized countries, we work toward the day when all people act as a single community sharing a common agenda: a better, safer world for children
Solidary Foundation strives to bring about positive and lasting changes in the lives of the world's children and their communities in a strategic and accountable way.
We are interested in developing partnerships and alliances which are mutually beneficial.
