Our Child Thrive initiative is a global coalition of community-based providers working to prevent deaths and disparities affecting children in low- and middle-income countries.

Where children are born should not determine if they live and thrive.

Since 2007, Children’s Place International has worked around the world to safeguard children’s well-being.

Our Approach

We partner with local organizations in the Caribbean, Africa, and Latin America to sustain positive health outcomes for vulnerable kids through disease prevention and treatment, while also providing a lasting pathway out of poverty through education, career training, and family support. We have helped change the life trajectories for tens of thousands of children and their families.

Our Child Thrive coalition partners:

  • Work in communities to address disparities among children and/or teens
  • Are led and staffed by people living and working in the community
  • Take advantage of best practices available to the local context
  • Implement effective and impactful youth interventions
  • Work in alignment with national health priorities
  • Share data on interventional impacts

Projects are community-designed and -led to provide sustainable support through young adulthood using a whole family approach. Child Thrive currently reaches over 4,500 young people and their families each year in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Tanzania, Kenya, and Chicago, USA.
