Mission

World Kids Compassion is a non-profit organization that aims to provide hope and opportunities for underprivileged children aged 5 to 17. These children reside in homeless shelters, camps, orphanages, and struggling single-parent households in the USA and select countries across the world. Drawing strength from our founders' firsthand experiences, we are devoted to providing essential warmth, nourishment, and educational resources, including the internet (mobile Hotspot), to ensure that every child has a chance to thrive. Our unwavering commitment to fostering a legacy of care, kindness, and transformation guides us as we invite individuals like you to join us in creating a world where compassion knows no bounds. We believe every child deserves the opportunity to dream.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Provide nutritious meals and essential educational resources to 115 orphaned children in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and select regions of Malawi aged 5 to 14 within twelve months. We will target 30 children in Liberia, 25 children in Malawi, 10 in Sierra Leone, and 50 children in the United States.

Measure the program's impact through regular assessments of the children's health, academic progress, and overall well-being of the program participants. We will also measure the program's impact by conducting surveys or feedback in the participants' communities to understand the program's success better.

We're partnering with local organizations, schools, and community leaders to ensure the successful execution of the program. The execution and success of the program also depend on local organizations and schools collaborating with our local agents.

This goal aligns with the core mission of World Kids Compassion to support underprivileged children's growth and development in the countries, as mentioned earlier. We at World Kids Compassion understand that good education can improve a child's confidence and well-being.

We will complete each project distribution of meals and educational resources within 12 months of the program's initiation to foster their continuous academic growth and well-being.

Partnership Development:
Form partnerships with local schools, orphanages, and community organizations in targeted regions to gain valuable insights and support for the program.
Collaborate with international and local NGOs experienced in child welfare and education to leverage their expertise and resources in catering to the needs of the participants.

Resource Mobilization:
Secure funding through grants, donations, and corporate sponsorships to support procuring nutritious meals and educational materials. Explore crowdfunding initiatives and fundraising events to engage a more comprehensive network of supporters.

Needs Assessment:
Conduct thorough needs assessments in collaboration with local stakeholders to identify specific nutritional requirements, educational, and other needs of the children in each region.

Community Engagement:
Organize community outreach programs to raise awareness about the initiative and actively involve local communities in planning and executing the program.

Monitoring and Evaluation:
Implement a robust monitoring and evaluation framework to track the program's impact on the children's health, academic performance, and overall well-being. We will regularly assess the program to help adjust program activities as needed and ensure accountability.

Stakeholder Communication:
To foster trust and support throughout the program, maintain transparent and consistent communication with all stakeholders, including donors, partner organizations, local and national authorities, and the children's caregivers. The communication may be through our website, emails, and any communication we have on file for the stakeholders.

Sustainability Planning:
Develop sustainable models for the program's continuation beyond the initial phase, including exploring opportunities for community involvement, vocational training programs for the parents or guardians to become independent in providing for their families, and local capacity building.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
