We see not only what is but what can be. We see problems being solved by local effort and long-term planning. We see progress on what once seemed impossible. We see possible and solvable. With this publication, we invite you to step into the work you contributed to this year. You too will SEE THE HOPE. It was – it is – all around, and we could not do it without you!
As we reflect on the year, we celebrate the successes which have given more women a voice, given more girls an opportunity, and which continue to Make Room for women and girls at the table. Change for Children is a family. We are proud to have you at our table. Squeeze in tight. Together, we can continue to Make Room!
Because of your support this year, we have been able to stitch together something beautiful, something unique, adding colour to lives. We are proud to participate in weaving the social fabric in our local community and our global community. What a beautiful piece we are creating!
This year we celebrate 40 Years of Making it Right — Nearly 30 million dollars invested improving the lives of over 5 million people in 20 countries. Our projects have had a lasting impact. This work has filled our hearts. You have joined us on this journey. We have reason to celebrate.
The faces smiling back from this Annual Report are all people who have been impacted by the generosity of our donors and the dedication of our long term project partners and whom we have met this past year. We have heard their stories, received their handshakes, been invited into their homes, and felt their resilient spirits. We hope you feel them too.
