We help communities globally through:
Nearly 1 million people die each year from water related issues. One More Child has continued to build and repair water wells in communities globally. We also distribute hundreds of water filters and provide training sessions on the importance of clean water and how people can access it in their community.
The estimated number of malnourished people worldwide is now more than 800 million. Last year, One More Child served more than 19 million meals, including 2.5 million outside the U.S., to families and children in crisis. Nutritious food and vitamins are essential to children and families living in extreme poverty.
An estimated 617 million children are unable to meet basic proficiency levels. One More Child currently serves more than 1,000 children through our sponsorship program which gives them greater access to education. Children in our sponsorship program receive opportunities for scholarships, school fees, uniforms and books.
Roughly 4.5 billion people don’t have a toilet that safely manages human waste at home. In the past three years, One More Child has built and repaired more than 100 latrines for families living in homes without access to a family bathroom. We’ve also aided multiple schools in building bathrooms so students could have proper sanitation.
Poor quality housing can lead to psychological stress, and higher levels of emotional problems. Since 2015, One More Child has built more than 100 homes for families. In the past three years, we’ve repaired 300+ homes that have roof leaks, unstable flooring and kitchens without proper smoke ventilation.
