We help communities globally through:
Nearly 1 million people die each year from water-related issues. One More Child continues to build and repair water wells in global communities. We also distribute hundreds of water filters while providing training on the importance of clean water and how people can have access. Let’s build safer homes!
An estimated 617 million children are unable to meet basic proficiency levels. One More Child serves more than 1,000 children through our sponsorship program, which gives access to education. Children in our sponsorship program receive opportunities for scholarships, school fees, uniforms and books.
The estimated number of malnourished people worldwide is now more than 800 million. One More Child serves more than 18 million meals annually, 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.
Poor quality housing can lead to psychological and emotional stress. Since 2015, One More Child has built more than 100 homes. In three years, over 300 homes with roof leaks, unstable flooring and kitchens without proper smoke ventilation have been repaired. We strive to build better environments and families!
Roughly 4.5 billion people do not have access at home to a toilet that safely manages human waste. In three years, One More Child has built and repaired more than 100 latrines for families, and we also helped schools in global communities build clean bathrooms for students. The sanitation of children is crucial for a family.
