Meet the Top Charities for Children


Children are gifts. Unfortunately, however, we have failed to take care of or protect our gifts. Millions of children still live on the streets, sleep on an empty stomach, miss schools and work in mines and other hazardous environments for a living.

The plight of these children has always been a major concern in recent times and millions of charities around the world are working around the clock to improve the situation. The services provided by some of them are truly commendable and have also attracted worldwide attention.

Here are the top five nonprofit organizations in the world, provided by leading nonprofit organizations, an online platform:

• Human Rights Watch (HRW)

• Museum of Modern Art

• United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)

• American Museum of Natural History

• Doctors Without Borders

Likewise, the World of Children Award – a global recognition and funding program, recognizes the most effective agents of change (individuals and organizations) for children around the world who have helped improve the lives of vulnerable children around the world. .

Here are the winners of the 2015 Children's World Awards:

• Health Prize 2015 – Amalia García Moreno de Casa de la Amistad by Niños con Cáncer

These are just a few names, apart from them, thousands of charities around the world work for the well-being of children. Some of the children's charities include Child Empowerment International, Invisible Children, War Child, Maiti Nepal and The Hunger Project.

Charities for Children in India

In India, the activities of charities are mainly concentrated in education, culture, development, housing, environment and health. Between 2002 and 2003, 1.2 to 4 million charities were operating in India, according to a study by the Society for Participatory Research in Asia (PRIA) and Johns Hopkins University, USA. Apart from that, India is also home to around 31 lakh of non-governmental organizations.

Some of the children's charities in India include:

• Baaldan

• Cry

• Dream a dream

• ChildLine India

• Child in Need Institute

• Deaf child India

• Make a difference

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is another name that has always been appreciated across the country. Dedicated to underserved schoolchildren since 2000, the Non-Governmental Organization currently feeds more than 1.4 million children from 10,845 schools in 10 Indian states. These charities have certainly helped to improve the lives of children in different parts of the world. But, it looks like, we still have to wait a little longer to reach our final destination. Finding a solution is very important because the development of a country depends on its citizens and children are the future citizens. So go ahead, give the kids a good start. Of course, this will have a positive impact on our country. You can start by getting involved in one of the reputable non-governmental organizations or just make a contribution to help children in need.
