ABOUT US WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

For the past 14 years more than 97 percent of Total Donations are allocated to Our Projects

Children's Hunger Relief Fund was founded by dedicated local volunteers who wanted to make sure that every dollar would provide maximum benefit to the children in need. Since 1998, the organization has kept its overhead at or below 3 percent of total program expenditures.

We Work with Local Project Managers

Children's Hunger Relief Fund pursues a grass roots strategy that helps keep overhead low and builds capacity at the community base - where it will have the greatest impact over the long term.

When Others Pull Out, We Dig In

Children's Hunger makes a commitment to an area for the long haul In hot spots like Sudan and Afghanistan, this often means digging in when other aid organizations are pulling out. Our loyalty builds trust and support from the people we serve, who don't have the option of leaving when the bombs start falling. This makes us much more effective over the long term.

We Pursue a Comprehensive Strategy Aimed at Permanently Breaking the Cycle of Poverty

To truly make a difference in children's lives over the long term, we must help their families and communities become more self-sufficient. We must break the cycle of poverty - which is the main enemy in the war to save children. Children's Hunger Relief Fund devotes considerable resources to this end in the form of micro-enterprise loans, vocational training and sustainable agriculture projects. The families we help then help other families out of the surplus they generate and the whole community becomes stronger. The result is healthier children with a much brighter hope for their futures. The cycle is broken - one family at a time.
