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.”

    Rwitch Orphanage Project is a Community Based Organization that was formed to give relief to orphans and mothers who are suffering. The organization started in early 1993 in Rwimi Town Council/ Rwimi Sub County with the vision of helping the orphans, children living in poor condition and widows with nobody to care for them. Presently the organization covers the whole of Rwimi Town council in Kabarole District on the Environs of Rwenzori Mountains.
    The organization gives relief and is dedicated to alleviate the suffering of orphans and it ensures that they have access to the fundamental needs and rights in life. Rwitch Orphanage Project started to help the great needs of many children left orphaned after their parents died while others were disturbed by intense guerrilla wars like the ADF (Allied Democratic Front) rebels who have been active around Rwenzori Mountains and have massacred hundreds of villagers.
    . The inhabitants of Kabarole district are agricultural farmers who grow food crops and sell only the surplus. Most people are peasant farmers who grow food crops for their own consumption. A lot children need support and care especially those who are suffering. We need a hand from volunteers to support the children and fulfill our mission of improving children lives.
    God bless you for charity work.

    SMILE ON A CHILD’S FACE INITIATIVE AFRICA; is a community based organization based in Rakai district central region of Uganda. Established basing on its vision; and mission:

    The Vision

    ”An Empowered and Self-Reliant Young Generation”

    The Mission:

    “Is to improve and transform the lives of neglected and needy children in remote communities in Uganda and the whole of Africa, focusing on Orphans, Street Children, and children under difficult circumstances.” moving them towards a new vision of putting a smile on a child’s face by providing them with education, shelter, clothes to prepare them for a a brighter future.
    The project plans to rehabilitate and empower the victims (orphans, street children and children under difficult circumstances) both girls and boy between the ages of 10-18 years old respectively
    Smile on a child’s face initiative Africa, is working towards making the children self reliant and good citizens through education and vocational training. It conducts counseling programme for the disturbed children, and a number of 30 children are considered in the first scheme when the funds are available.

    Prior to founding Smile on a child’s face initiative Africa, we undertook a 1 year long pilot study (“Cry For Help”) of the social, economic conditions of young children in difficulties being entirely exploited by many organizations in the name of helping them.

    This 1 year pilot study analysis program gave us a clear- cut picture about the issue of needy young children and the ground realities.

    Objectives of Smile on a Child’s’ face initiative Africa

    • To provide children with education, vocational training for self- sustainability.
    • To construct a multimillion center for the young children between the age of 10-18 years old. This will also have facilities that will shelter these children.
    • To transform disgruntled children into a vocal group fighting against exploitation, and facilitate their empowerment and rehabilitation.
    • To create a mass movement against child neglect and exploitation.

    • To integrate the street children, neglected and the Orphaned children into the mainstream and make them self-reliant through counseling, education and vocational training.
    • To rescue children tortured by their parents/guardian and expose the unholy and inhuman practices.
    • To assist in the prevention of rural-urban migration, which is a major contributor of street children. To eradicate the social taboo and rejection through sensitization of various social and peer groups.
    • To expose human rights violations against children in all sections of society.
    • To provide support to children affected by domestic violence and other social-economic problems.
    • To combat child labor including domestic slavery, which is one of the contributors to sex trafficking and rampant increase on street children.


    Growing up in Africa is a struggle that is beyond imagination.
    you are fortunate to be alive at the age of six.
    many of your age mates have died of preventable diseases such as Malaria, Dysentery, Malnutrition, and the six killer diseases which are immunisable.
    …being killed by preventable acts such as Wars, HIV/AIDS from Mother to child effect ion thus leading to death of their parents, guardian hence making them Orphans, street children (Marginalized Children).
    life is a struggle for the African children compared to their count apart in developed World and this trend is not about to STOP.
    Unless governments, International agencies, Non-Government Organization, civil society, Private Sector, and individuals to unite behind the Objective to improve on the lives of children in Africa therefore putting a smile on a child’s face.

    Let’s all get together and change a little bit the lives of Young and marginalised Children, by Donate, Give or Contribute in any way. Clothes, Reading Materials, Money, to enable us reach hundreds of Children in Uganda.

  13. SM Farid says:

    Thankful for your elaborate informative discussion sent me. Finally we have seen an advertisement of Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) yesterday (after 12 days of disaster) in the national daily for collecting donation. Here declared two Account Number – one Sonali Bank, Maghbazar Branch, Dhaka, second Standard Chartered Bank, Dhaka. Standard Chartered is online banking from any city money could be deposited there. But this is a bank for richer, general mass never look at this in our country. Sonali Bank only one branch at Maghbazar, Dhaka that is tougher for even Dhaka city dweller, reach there during office time due to traffic Jam and other constraints.

    Main Spirit of sasrai-Movement appeal new policy for Humanitarian Services was involve mass people in contribution that contribute in two way a. mass people could share their feelings for the victim. b. Environmental/Climate Crisis awareness among all that’s utmost and urgent need for the globe. We do believe each could contribute combat climate crisis/ disaster no matter how small it is. And we should open the avenue.

    We thought to formulate new policy for Humanitarian Services ICRC, IFRC could sit with the global Bank Association Authority that would develop a system in each and every branch of any bank would have a both to receive donation/contribution from anyone, any amount might be 01….05 BDT. This new avenue would offer chance for all (the poorer, small amount payee student) to be worthy donor, feelings/sorrow sharer. Each bank has CSR fund and portion of that could be used to continue the process.

    Yes I do agree amount may not be bigger but that will bring humanitarian feelings and disaster/environmental/climate crisis awareness among all. And right now this is the most vital need for the global community.

    I do hope your kind attention and consideration to raise the issue before the policy maker that would offer – anyone with any amount could be donor.


    SM Farid
    Secretariat Incharge
    a. Nature rebellious/mutinous, regularly irregular and erratic than ever before – disaster may come any time anywhere else – we need to new policy for Humanitarian Services.

    b. If Bangladeshi 60 million poor contribute just price of one cup tea fund would be 300 million BDT that’s important for any affected country. In case of Japan or any rich country this amount may be uncountable but country like Bangladesh this is important.

    c. Let’s learn from the Australia, Newzealand, Brazil, Pakistan, Japan Disaster. Nature rebellious, we must care, nurturing “save a bit, reserve, preserve, conserve resources.”

  15. Charles Dinda says:

    I’m Charles Dinda former Executive Director of Law and Development Association. I founded this organisation in 1996 and worked for 14 years as executive director. LADA is a human rights organisation which is focusing on four programs:

    d. Publication: Translating laws into the local languages

    2. Paralegal Services and Education and
    a. Training of rural women as Paralegals who in turn establish legal desks
    in rural communities and offer free legal advice to women and children
    b. Training of key stakeholders (Police, Teachers, health workers and the
    Judiciary) on human, women and children’s rights

    3. Paralegal Kids Project
    a. Train children in and out of School as Paralegal Kids who later serve as
    peer educators in their respective schools and communities, they also
    provide basic legal advice and referrals to abused children
    b. Established a Child Protection Project involving four organisations
    c. In conjunction with the police, prosecution of child molesters

    A part from doing this work, my family in 2003 started a charity gift box where family members were donating clothes, shoes, books and toys which were quarterly distributed to identified vulnerable children especially to orphans and other in the nearby shanty compound who were not assisted by NGOs. However, this charity box changed its initial ideas because of two challenges I experienced. Firstly, in 2005 my young brother’s 5 years old daughter was defiled by a 27 year old man and then in 2006 a father terribly wept in my office after a Subordinate court sentenced 19 years old juvenile to two years attachment to Social Welfare Department for counselling for defiling his 5 year old daughter and nothing was done to her to help her recover form the trauma she went through. It dawn to us that there is no organisation in the region working with victims of sexual violence.

    Therefore, in 2007 our family charity box was transformed into a new and registered NGO called Women and Girls Foundation (ZaWGF) in Zambia which was formed specifically to fill in the gap which was identified. ZaWGF has a board of directors who are drawn from both government ministries and NGOs in the region depending on their roles and areas of expertise. The organisation is focussing on:

    1. Rehabilitating victims of sexual abuse
    a. Training of women as psychosocial counsellors: some of the women trained
    are victims of sexual abuse and are turned into sources of hope for other
    b. Running home based care services for victims of sexual abuse
    c. Awareness raising to communities and children as a way of preventing abuse

    2. Education Support to vulnerable Girls
    a. Provide school fees, and stationary for girls in school
    b. Campaign for young women who dropped out of school because of early
    marriage to go back to school
    c. Work with community schools where most of the vulnerable girls learn from
    to build classroom blocks
    d. Monitor the performance of sponsored girls and provide appropriate

    3. Economic support for vulnerable women
    a. Support households where vulnerable children stay with farming implements
    and start up capital so that they are food secure

    Since 2007 our organisation has been single handily funded by the founding family and we received material support from students from Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, Germany who provided clothes, shoes and books for sponsored girls. The letcturers and students could be reached through Ms. Maja Smrkolj at [email protected]

    On 31 May 2010, I left my former employer to concentrate on ZaWGF and help build the capacity of the organisation by devoting all my time to working with the staff both at the office and in the field. If warded this grant, it would really help us support more girls and households to improve our ever increasing numbers of vulnerable children. At ZaWGF we believe that the past and current vulnerability of children can be re-written through Education Support. A girl educated today will be empowered woman who will ensure her children too go to school and eventually the entire nation, region and globe will have empowered women and children. We already have all the required experience, strategies and commitment, all we need is your financial support. Your grant will go a long way in changing children’s lives in Zambia.

    The major goal is to empower and identify vulnerable children (OVC) youth and women with skills and resources to enable them improve their lives and become productive members of society. Our core programmes include Education, health and socio-economic empowerment. Our most challenge is limited funding to enable us effectively translate our programmes into practical solutions to the problems affecting people in our community. We therefore look out for any potentiality of partners/funders to see the cause to enabling and benefit the said proposal. Looking forward with great hope.

    I am the director, heritage formation house for vulnerable children at my local council in Uganda. we offer our services to vulnerable people/children, orphans, street children, HIV/AIDS patients and disabled children. we join efforts stretching from proffesional people and community help, in the villages of nagganda, konge,Lukuli and katuso.

    our objectives include
    1. Preaching of the gospel about disability not meaning inability.
    • In the health sector, we put aside some funds to help doctors and nurses plus the rest of the human resource in the health sector to also have access to its so that they put side business where to invest and increase of their savings.
    • We also allocate some money to improve the health sector like renovation of clinical centers and medical shops.
    • We also arrange for prayer session from priest to go and pray for the sick as a sign of motivation.
    • We also arrange with local council counselors to provide that service to the sick.
    • HIV/AIDS victim also be a paramount target, these victims think to them life is gone and they are just waiting for that moment of death. We shall have to tarnish that image or thinking from them, as we show to them that regardless of the being a victim still you can be productive in the society. We shall also put up a system that reminds them of going to get medication from health centers.
    • We also make sure that we convert a number of girls and ladies who are stricken by poverty, driving them to becoming commercial sex workers. We shall sensitize them to change their thinking about that, the loan scheme will do better to them.

    • We send some funds to the primary schools around most especially to improve their physical education to the children.
    • We also allocate funds to setting up a public library to the general public.
    • Some funding is also allocated to secondary schools, to improve their technical institutions which these youth graduates will go and use for the acquisition of knowledge driving them to being job creator not seekers.
    • Teachers are very instrumental in the society but the payment accrued to them is too little, therefore to boast them up we shall invite them to send us business proposals and we loan them money at a very small interest rate so that they can also improve their standards of living.

    I was by a group of parents for their children’s early childhood care and development program to be a resource person on how to manage a learning discipline at early age of their children. Though I’m working at an office from 8:00 am to 5:00 Pm or as full time worker, I was challenged need to share my knowledge to the young age children in Sitio Manol, Barangay Tisa, Cebu City, Philippines. Our problem was a building where to conduct our sessions daily from Monday to Friday. First batch of children for two (2) hours from 7:30 to 9:30a.m. and second batch of children from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and another batch of children from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. and for unschooled for grade 1 entrants was from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The conduct of sessions were handled by para-teachers and some professional but not a Licensure Examination of Teachers passers (LET.) However, I have to meet the two teachers every time at evening, Saturdays and Sundays for guidance/directions/academic content and approches. I made loans for the children’s table and chairs and paid the loans incurred from own salary because I don’t like that children will be sacrificed from their early childhood education and development sessions which was held at the second floor of a market in the barangay since 1997 to 1999. When the barangay officials wanted to use the second floor, we were forced to transfer to a one room privately owned old house at the inner [art of the village since 1999 to 2010.

    Until now, we still using the old private house that is not owned by us by the Association but children are still happy while learning and growing life. Thousands of children have change their lives and have changed their perspective in life. Some graduated and are already enjoying their life as professionals.

    I started the NGO – Association for Children’s Community Reachout & Development, Inc.(ACCREAD, Inc.)penniless and ended up penniless this 2011. I don’t know my what to do with my daily livelihood in the future because I spent my money with the ACCREAD, Inc. which was interpreted as acceleration in reading ideas interpreting ideas/gain more knowledge because I believe that learning at early age is learning to know in life, learning what ought to do, knows how to live together with others knowing what will be in life and open to learn from each other lives and experiences.

    Until this time March 1, 2011, I am with the poor children at Sitio Manol, Tisa, Cebu City, Philippines. I just pray and trust God that compassionate people may help that their early childhood care and development program may continue for the early childhood stage of the young generation right now.

    I thank you for the organizers of this AWARDS 2011, I’m hoping for the best of your time and good luck to you all.

    Sincerely yours,

    As a response to the prevailing conflict that has gone for almost 2 decades now in Northern Uganda, Gulu Archdiocese found it necessary to establish a program, which can carry out guidance, and Counselling services to the war affected population including Elderly, Disabled, vulnerable children, Formally abducted persons and ex-combatants, youth in and out of schools and other populations affected by the prevailing conflict
    From it initiation it was meant to be a more professional answer to the great and overwhelming need of the population in the area of psychological assistance. Although some people are deeply wounded than others, everybody is mentally heavily affected by the last 20 years personally and as a group (family, community). Also due to the war the pandemic of HIV/AIDS has tremendously increased in this geographical area to 12% (despite the infection rate going down for Uganda as a whole to 6%), and most of the population have to get on term with the fact that their lives are infected or affected by this.

    To reduce psycho-social, economic and cultural factors escalated by the 24 years insurgency and HIV/AIDS that hinders the post war community in Northern Uganda from living a self-sustaining, dignified and harmonious life.

    1. To improve the mental health condition of people in Northern Uganda by enrolling and training professional counsellors at all levels (certificates, diploma, degree, etc)
    2. To promote sustainable psycho-social wellbeing of people in Northern Uganda through rehabilitative activities, promoting peace and reconciliation, restoration of socio-cultural and spiritual values of the post war community.
    3. To increase on the mobilization and education of community members for HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention, provision of HIV/AIDS care and support to the infected and affected population

    Hi,I am a Chief Executive Officer (CEO),of the PLAN ACCESS AFRICA,a non-government,non-profit,voluntary and charity organization founded in Tanzania since 1997.It is the humanitarian based organization committed on the advancement and promotion of justice and humanity in the country,especislly to communities in needy,vulnerable,marginalised,outreach,displaced and the victims of human violation across the country.We work-hard by creating access to the hard-to-reach and beyond the limits where we become the voice of the disadvantaged communities.
    Our recent programme is the “MALNUTRITION NO MORE”,a campaign which mobillizes civil movement to end malnutrion sage in Serengeti District.Malnutrition in children in Tanzania is a problem which causes death to massive childrens.For the last decade,about 100000 children died from malnutrion;whereby in the last year 2010,about 43000 died from the same cause.Tanzania stands at three in Africa for malnutritional seviourity,only behind the Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo,(DRC).
    Our campaign focuses to the primary school chidren due to the fact that,about 80% of school children in Tanzania,including this particular area are neither access to lunch nor drinks during school hours.Clinical observation reveals that,2 children out of 5 are malnourished,7 of 10 are situnted,3 of 5 have weighless,while 3 in 10 dies due to poor nutrition or chronic inadequate intake cases.
    Our campaign have managed to construct four water tanks to four primary schools,formation of food committes in those schools in which we have organized the food programs in schools where today children are getting lunch at school hours.Teachers says the campaign helped to raise the school attendance,perfomance and punctuality among the pupils.We seek to extend this campaign to another area so as to enable each child study conviniently with good health.While saving lives,we improve education and hence create a strong future.Your support will save and educate many more!.
