Building a child’s confidence is part of how we support them as their basic needs are met through our programs. So, we hope they believe in the message of the “Affirmation” poem recited by a young YouTube sensation in the video below.

“Every morning up early I rise. I look in the mirror and I recite… I am beauty, I am brains, I am intelligent, I am smart,” says the young star Pe’Tehn.

As children grow in our programs, we encourage and foster youth leadership, so young people can change their own futures for the better.

Watch the video below, and see how building confidence in children goes a long way.

Sharing is caring:


Children Believe works globally to empower children to dream fearlessly, stand up for what they believe in — and be heard. For 60+ years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.
