Explore the program sectors below for a better understanding of how donations received by Christian Children’s Fund of Canada supporters are changing the lives of children today, tomorrow, and forever.
All of our program sectors have two goals, in addition to the successful completion of defined projects within each program sector:
These goals are achieved by working through local partners who, being from the country, are experts in the unique cultures, customs, and needs of the communities where we work. Our partners are carefully selected for their integrity, achievements, and genuine compassion for children. Our partners also work strategically and in close collaboration with the local, regional and national government, wherever possible. This helps to ensure sustainability of our interventions. We monitor all of our program activities and projects very carefully to ensure that the lives of children, their families, and communities are indeed improving with how we spend your money.
Throughout all of our program sectors we emphasize Child Protection, Gender, and Environment—giving children the additional support they need to live in peace and safety. Together, these are the essentials of life.

Because the challenges that each community faces are different, the solutions for each are unique, too. Here, our work can include:
