Dedicated to improving the quality of life for children around the world, The Children for Peace (ONLUS) has spearheaded projects in several developing countries. The organization recently partnered with the non-governmental organization (NGO) Mujeres Solidarias, headquartered at the University of Malaga in Spain for a program in Mali’s Dogan Country. Tackling an illiteracy rate of 87 percent, these NGOs have contributed to educational projects, as well as a vaccination program for the region’s residents. Currently, 100% of the children, both boys and girls, are in school.
Additionally, The Children for Peace (ONLUS) works with a refugee camp in the Palestinian Territories where their program currently has 800 children in the camp actively being tutored and mentored. The NGO also provides grants to support educational programs for children living in these camps. Finally, The Children for Peace (ONLUS) raises funds to provide medication, nutritious food, and compassionate care to orphans who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS, concentrating on the education of these orphans.
Headquartered in Rome, this NGO operates with virtually no overhead and recently received recognition from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) for its standout contributions.
