...is a lofty goal, here in Southeast Asia, where poverty is part of the landscape, and literacy is often measured only by a person's ability to read a simple passage and write his name. Where there seems to be as many street children as there are adult beggars, Where child labour is condoned. Where hope and future are words not in many children's minds.
Child Care International is giving them just that.
Hope. For the future.
Child Care International provides safe shelter, food, basic health care, education and training which enables children to develop their potential and play a positive role in their communities. Without help, many children, whose families can barely etch out a living, would never step foot into a classroom. Without care, homeless and abused children often turn to crime, drug abuse and prostitution.
