Helping children put their fears aside so they can dream big

Listen to this song, which is a reminder of what can hold kids back from reaching for the stars

We dream of a world where every child has a voice and the ability to achieve their potential, so we love this “Dream” video performed by One Voice Children’s Choir. It highlights barriers holding kids back and gives them encouragement to persevere.

“The burdens of life steal our purpose and peace. Broken and angry we cry for relief,” sings the youth in the video. “Dreaming inspires us to reach for the stars, healing our wounds and removing the scars.”

A big thank you to our donors for supporting more than 900,000 children, youth and adults to create thriving communities, which sets the stage to advance child rights and protection, promote equality for girls and partner with children for change.
