There are lots of charities around the world. Each of these charities has its’ own cause and focus. It may be disaster survivors, cancer patients, or abused women. Among the most abundant types of charities, though, are charities for children. Children, after all, are helpless in the sense that they are not yet able to think as adults. When deprived of necessities such as food, shelter, parents or education, they are most likely to fall without support. Hence, charities for children were formed.
Charities for children often believe in and emphasize the importance of caring for children, protecting their welfare, and preparing them for their future. Thus, the main goals of these organizations include heightening public awareness about children’s issues and the solutions to their problems. Most charities for children also help other agencies that support the similar cause in raising funds. The foremost mission is to give these deprived children a chance and help them achieve brighter futures.
Each year, leading charities for children around the world do worldwide campaigns for specific causes. Usually it’s for child poverty, as this is often the root cause of most of children’s problems. For instance, in the United Kingdom, ten of the country’s leading children’s charities have joined together in a campaign to end child poverty. These charities are the Child Poverty Action Group, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), Barnardos, Shelter, Save the Children, Family Welfare Association, The Children’s Society, and the National Children’s Bureau. The union called for action to help three million children growing up under the poverty line.
One example of a famous children’s charity in the United States is KIDS. It focuses on disabled children and helps them make the most of their abilities at an early age. Founded more than thirty years ago, KIDS basically concentrates on the inclusion of disabled children and young people in everyday life. It supports the children’s educational, social and emotional development. It supports and encourages the children’s parents as well.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is a leading children’s charity in the United Kingdom that specializes in child protection and child cruelty prevention. With a history that dates back to 1884, NSPCC aims for a society that does not tolerate any type of child abuse, be it physical, social, emotional or neglect. The charity has 180 teams and projects all over England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Among its’ regular programs include child protection training and advice, research, information resources and fundraisings.
Get Kids Going is another charity in Great Britain that helps develop disabled children by engaging them in sports. It provides specially built sports wheelchairs so disabled children can do marathons, triathlons athletics, tennis, rugby, mountain skiing and others. It also supports and helps disabled children through training, physiotherapy, and development of sports wheelchairs, among others. No other charity in Great Britain focuses on developing, helping and encouraging children with disabilities through sports in the same way as Get Kids Going does.
