PovertyMore than 800 million people lack income to provide for material needs like food, water, shelter, and clothing. More than 400 million children live in extreme poverty – surviving on less than US$1.90/day. Lack of food and water is not simply a matter of hunger, poverty often leads to malnutrition, disease, and early death. While the United States has developed social welfare programs to protect against poverty few other countries provide the protections offered by a safety net.
Our SolutionTo address the problem’s that result from poverty, Save All Children helps start up charities raise funds from individuals, corporate donors and grants.
Hunger and MalnutritionHunger and malnutrition are a consequence of poverty. A lack of nutritious food – such as milk, fruit, and vegetables – leads to developmental disabilities and death, which in turn increases poverty. Studies prove that malnutrition leads to poor health, which then lowers educational and economic performance throughout a child’s lifetime.
Our SolutionSave All Children International works with Building Dreams Foundation to address this problem with their meals on wheels program. BDF acquired donations of cookware and food, purchased a used truck and delivers nutritious cooked meals to over 5,000 children’s families each year.
HealthHunger and malnutrition are only one aspect of health issues facing children worldwide. Poor air quality, a lack of potable water, and lack of sewage and garbage disposal lead to a wide range of lifelong disabilities. Poverty typically leads to a lack of medical services – both doctors and medicines – that can save lives and improve children’s futures.
Our SolutionWe sponsor programs which provide personal hygiene products, necessary medications, and clean drinking water to severely impoverished populations. We help to support Project Hope Journey in Turkey which provides vital medical and psychological treatments to child victims of war who suffer severe burns and deformities.
Poverty often causes children to miss education while they scavenge for food to survive. In turn, their lack of education often leads to poverty, hunger, malnutrition, failing health and early death. Studies show that a lack of basic language and math skills lead to reduced employment opportunities, poverty, hunger and poor health. Education also requires teaching environmental conservation, preservation, and sustainability to protect children’s health. Modern education also teaches equal rights for women and female empowerment.
We partner with charities worldwide that provide education and awareness campaigns for marginalized children. Children are able to learn new skills and become empowered.
