International Programming

It's not charity, It's sustainability.

In our International Programming, Free The Children works alongside the men, women and children who every day strive to free themselves from poverty, exploitation, disease and thirst. This effort is not charity, it is sustainability. It is freedom in action. It is Free The Children's Adopt a Village development model.

Adopt a Village
Building a community for global change

Free The Children's ground-breaking international development model is built on the belief that every community has the potential to lift itself out of poverty—forever.

Families and local governments in developing countries are our partners in advancing holistic solutions to address the root causes of poverty. Together, we're working toward a world where all communities can fulfill their children's right to education, clean water, health care, nutritious food and a thriving future.

We call it Adopt a Village. Here's how this development model is changing lives the world over.

It's holistic. We know that poverty is a complex problem, and no issue or solution stands alone. We work through five development pillars that provide "big picture" solutions that support and amplify each other.
It's led by the community. Our partner communities take ownership of the programs and projects that create lasting change. Working in tandem with their local government, they devote time and resources to every new initiative.
It builds capacity. We help community members develop the skills, strategies and infrastructure to take charge of their future and maintain long-term change.
It connects communities. Your donation makes you part of a global family. We connect donating partners in North America and the UK with communities overseas to build relationships that inspire change worldwide. You can even take volunteer trips to meet and work with your partner community.
It's transparent. We've invited third-party experts and the brightest analytical minds in the world of development to look at our model from every angle. They confirm that our solutions are effective and built to last.
It's sustainable. Our goal is to reach a point within five years where our communities don't need our help any more. Instead, they have the training and tools to thrive for generations. We've seen this work time and time again.
Adopt a Village is an adaptive, effective five-pillar model built on 19 years of experience collaborating with dedicated community members and development experts to find solutions that work. And we're so proud of what we've managed to accomplish with your help.
