JustWorld International acts as a catalyst for positive change in the developing world by working in alliance with local partner organizations to provide basic education, nutrition, health, hygiene, and vocational programs for children in impoverished communities in Cambodia, Honduras and Guatemala.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
JustWorld places a global focus on children and education, in an effort to empower a generation to lift themselves out of poverty and overcome the many challenges that hinders them: -Communities with no social or health services: no schools, no safe streets, no running water; crime and gang activity, drug and alcohol abuse -Families with low means of income where they are have to enter the labor force at early age, and the related costs of materials and attendance keeps them out of school
How will this project solve this problem?
We focus on providing long-term support to multi-dimensional children's well-being programs in developing countries: education, health and hygiene, nutrition, and cultural and vocational programs. Toward these goals, JustWorld: Works in communities where local organizations have evolved to help children who often fall beyond the reach of government and large-scale humanitarian programs Balances direct JustWorld staff oversight with local management
Potential Long Term Impact
JustWorld currently reaches 3890 children and youth across the globe through the support of programs that look for the overall well-being of children. By ensuring children's access to proper nutrition and health (a hungry and sick child cannot learn), and to pair it up with innovative educational initiatives and support, we can help increase the enrollment and academic performance of thousands, providing a timely intervention by investing in their future.
