Vulnerable Children Society is a vibrant, grassroots registered Canadian charity (#810826917RR0001) managed by Canadian volunteers, dedicated to helping some of the most vulnerable children in the world: one by one. Since 2010, we have partnered with Ethiopian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to support children and families with specific, targeted programs.
Our mission is to enrich children’s lives, breaking them out of the cycle of poverty and providing them a chance at fulfilling life.
In partnership with Ethiopian NGOs, we target the most vulnerable of vulnerable, and support programs tailored to those families needs, whether they are challenged by HIV, gender discrimination, poverty or lack of education.
In Canada, our role includes fundraising, strategic programming, oversight and liaison with partners, and donor communications. Each of Vulnerable Children’s monthly donors is a member of Vulnerable Children Society. At last count, we have over 100 members from Canada, the USA, and Europe. We are also supported by independent fundraisers, occasional donors, and other NGOs. (More on our approach to finances here.) We have one part-time Ethiopian contractor on the ground, who supports the activities of our working board of directors.
