Change for Children supports sustainable community development in Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean. It is through partnerships with community groups and individuals who are advocating for southern communities, that we stimulate positive, long-term social change. In solidarity with southern partners who are committed to pursuing sustainable solutions, Change for Children is committed to understanding what our role is, as Canadians, in the struggle to alleviate global poverty. Change for Children does not have offices in the developing world; instead, we support and empower local organizations who apply local knowledge and skills to solve problems and improve their communities. It is in this way that sustainable solutions are developed.
