Launched in 2007, Children’s Place International is part of the Children’s Place Association, a Chicago-based nonprofit organization helping children and families overcome health issues and poverty since 1991.
Children’s Place International is a fast growing, innovative and entrepreneurial organization connecting the Midwest with the urgent needs of children and families living in extreme poverty in Africa and the Caribbean.
Our mission is to build a secure and hopeful today so children facing health issues and poverty succeed tomorrow.
History: Children’s Place International launched its first partnership to help children and families in Haiti in 2008 – a program that continues today. In 2009, Children’s Place began working in Guyana followed by Botswana in 2010, Mozambique in 2015, and Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia in 2016. We work with a variety of Midwest supporters and partner groups, including individual donors, foundations, Fortune 500 companies and major universities.
