There is no doubt that children are paramount to our society. It is they who will build and shape the future, not only for us, but for themselves and for future generations. Thus, we should do our best to give children in need a hope for a bright future, and treat them as our own.
At Save Children’s Futures, we believe that each child deserves the opportunity to succeed, no matter their financial, social, racial, or religious background. But even here in the United States of America, a powerful country deemed the ‘land of opportunity,’ the economy and society still presents a limitation to our ideal.
Sadly, there are many children who face difficulties in their everyday lives. We try to address four main problems:
There are children who do not have parental figures to guide and nurture them throughout life. There are children who have parents, but their lives are filled with emotional turmoil and instability. We aim to provide prospective parents with the information and resources necessary for them to give these children a better home, a home filled with love and acceptance.
There are children who are seriously ill, and lack proper medical treatment. We try to help their families afford the medical care they need to stay alive.
There are children whose families cannot afford to provide them with basic necessities such as food or clothing. We collect donations in the form of non-perishable goods, clothing, and toys.
There are children whose families have recently moved or immigrated to the United States and are ill-informed about the existing programs that are designed to aid and support them as they adjust to their new lives. We help them by providing this information in a clear and concise manner.
With Save Children’s Futures, you can help underprivileged children in a number of ways:
Volunteer your time and effort
Donate basic necessities such as food, clothes, books and toys
Provide financial support in the form of a donation
Consider becoming an adoptive parent. If you are willing to make this commitment and intend to move forward with the adoption process, you may contact us for details and useful information on how to proceed.
Together we will be able to change children’s lives for the better!
Our organization was formed in 2018 when we, as four like-minded friends, expressed the desire to give back to the society which has granted us so much opportunity. We concluded that there is no better way to do so than by helping future generations.
Previously, we each had only partaken in individual efforts to help children. Here are our stories.
