What we aim to solve New!

Millions of children are suffering from war, poverty, neglect and disease. Many of them struggle with debilitating but treatable medical problems. There is a severe, often fatal gap—and a profound lack of innovative life changing product for children in need and their caregivers—in the coordination and delivery of vital resources. Countless people and organizations are working tirelessly to provide their care and expertise from home and on the front lines abroad. However, without comprehensive coordination and communication, these efforts often fail to create sustainable social impact.

Most pressing is the lack of a system that coordinates and connects children in need to people and organizations ready to help them. The challenge is to efficiently and systematically connect any child of any background living anywhere in the world to the vital resources they require for their wellbeing.

In order to exponentially increase the number of children, caregivers and providers served around the world, TGCF is working with innovators in healthcare and technology to transition the CREC manual network to the CREC online platform. The CREC digital platform is envisioned as the go-to source for access and delivery of pediatric healthcare, serving children in need globally. The data management system will be accessible through a mobile app that will provide a connective, facilitation care management tool that will streamline communications between caregivers and providers and greatly improve the delivery of medical, surgical and rehabilitative care and groundbreaking research and cures. The CREC app will enable fast and efficient access to an international network of care, expertise and funding that will include information on medical missions, clinical trials, professional association meetings/conferences, funding platforms, transportation, travel/government documentation, hosting environments and community service programs…scaling the solution to the magnitude of the problem.

Since its inception TGCF has relied on and been energized by its collaborative efforts. In keeping with our common goals of empowering people to achieve more and to flourish in their lives with dignity and purpose, TGCF has partnered with innovators at Microsoft and Microsoft Philanthropies to exponentially increase the number of children served globally and to systematize the articulation, access and delivery of vital resources. This partnership facilitates the transition of the Children's Resource Exchange Center manual network into a connective digital platform that will coordinate aid and close the gap between children in need and people and organizations ready to help them...combining human conscientiousness with technology.

Each child's unique situation will be tracked through his/her interventions. They will engender support from the medical community, host families, donors, and community service projects. A number of new resources will be coordinated through The Children's Resource Exchange Center (CREC) network with measurable results for the total number of children who are served.

For the past two decades TGCF has been working manually through the CREC network with partners and children from North and South America, Asia, Africa and Europe and, most recently, the Middle East, connecting children to pro-bono and subsidized care on a case-by-case basis. As we begin this exciting new venture in 2018, our goal is to scale the solution to the magnitude of the problem so that any child of any background living anywhere in the world may access the vital care and resources necessary for their wellbeing.
