About child:assist

Assist International believes that every child deserves the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life, and there is nothing more life-changing than providing a child with a family and education.

Why It Matters.

THE NEED

Over 90% of orphans in the world live in low and middle-income countries.

Every minute around the world, 2 children under the age of 5 die from acute lower respiratory infections such as pneumonia and bronchiolitis. Many of these deaths could be prevented with better diagnostic treatment and access to oxygen therapy.

Low blood oxygen levels in children with respiratory infections make them 5x more likely to die than children with normal blood oxygen levels.

These children are orphaned from things like HIV/AIDS and armed conflict.
With no one to care for them, many of these children suffer from hunger, malnutrition, and lack of education.

We create lasting change by equipping indigenous organizations and individuals with the tools, infrastructure, and resources to improve the lives of children in need.

Our Approach

OUR SOLUTION

img_5076

Assist International believes that every child deserves the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life, and there is nothing more life-changing than providing a child with a family and education. We care for orphaned and vulnerable children by developing and sustaining family-style orphan villages. 

We also build and support schools for children. Education is the foundation of a hopeful, productive future, yet in the world today, millions of children do not have the opportunity to attend primary school. We work with our partners to provide educational opportunities for children that have limited or no access to education.

est. 1990

Assist International was birthed out of a response to the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children. Since 1990, this has always been the center of our mission.

Collaborative with local entities to develop a Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) to form the SBE.
Funding for start-up operational expenses are negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
Oversee warranty service, spare parts kit, and provide ongoing operational and maintenance support.
Mentor and support the SBE on best business practices (e.g., business plan, market analysis, delivery mechanisms, finances).
