Kids can do so much when we believe in them
Watch and learn more about how children are inspiring their families and communities
Kids can do amazing things. We see it every day in the programs we support, where children run households, overcome the unthinkable, learn their rights and stand up to make change for themselves and others.
Eliodoro (above) was just 16 when he spoke at the United Nations’ High Level Political Forum last year, challenging the audience to do more to make positive change. “As a youth I commit to keep working in my community to prevent and end all forms of violence against children and adolescents,” the Paraguayan youth said. “I trust you, too, as world leaders, will do the same in favour of all children and adolescents of the world.”
Watch this ABC News video for a look at inspiring kids in America. Consider sponsoring a vulnerable child, and inspire them to dream big and do amazing things for themselves and others, too.
ABOUT CHILDREN BELIEVE (formerly Christian Children's Fund of Canada):
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.
