Kids deserve the chance to realize their dreams and create lasting change
Watch this video of children reminding us of the power of dreaming big
What did you want to be when you grew up? It’s a popular question, and it’s one we ask kids a lot in our programs as we give them access to basic essentials and education so they can reach those dreams. It’s why we enjoy this YouTube video from Seattle’s HiHo Kids of 100 kids telling us what they want to be when they grow up.
“I want to be a paleontologist, mine for dinosaur bones and study them,” says a young boy in the video. Others say they want to be a cook, police officer, lawyer or a filmmaker, among other aspirations.
We help children reach their dreams by supporting thriving communities with life’s essentials, advancing child rights and protection, promoting gender equality and partnering with children to make lasting change.
