The World of Children Annual Awards: Humanitarian, Health and Youth Awards

The World of Children Annual Awards Program is a global recognition and funding program that “exclusively focuses on a broad range of children’s issues such as health including hunger and nutrition, education, safety and human rights.” It works to improve the lives of children worldwide by identifying and providing recognition to those extraordinary individuals who work at the ground-level on behalf of children in need.

“The World of Children Awards program was created to recognize and elevate those selfless individuals who make a difference in the lives of children here in the USA and across the globe, regardless of political, religious or geographical boundaries. These courageous leaders recognize that our children are the world’s most important asset. Their stories are heroic.

The World of Children honors these leaders, and grants them funds to support the proven, high-impact programs they have created. These awards assure that more children’s lives will be touched, and changed, forever.”
