Information

Children's Welfare International (CWI)

Children’s Welfare International (CWI) is a US based 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization which is also accredited in Liberia as a Non-governmental organization (NGO).

CWI promotes a holistic and collaborative approach to caring for, protecting and empowering vulnerable children around the world.

Our organization started as a modest grassroots effort to provide a better and more hopeful future for impoverished, homeless and orphaned children in the wake of the Second Liberian Civil War.  

We strive to break the cycle of injustice and child poverty by providing a center in Liberia which serves as a safe haven – keeping Liberian children safely off the streets

In Liberia, children coming to our center receive school sponsorship, nutritious meals, and recreational activities with future plans to open a provisional residential facility and additional family support services. 

In the US, CWI continues its mission by providing Educational enrichment, College preparation, and Career development services for low income and under-served communities. It takes a village to raise a child. 

For this reason, CWI works collaboratively with local and international agencies and community leaders to accomplish our mission while promoting community empowerment for sustainable development. 

Children and Youth are at the focus of our efforts as they represent the future.

I am sure few of you will be added to the list of presenters at our upcoming international conference. Please visit Child Now and browse through conference themes. The outcomes set for the conference will also be of your interest. Since the presentation is possible online, that will bring an ease for you to avoid visa and other hardships!

Enjoy the weekend!

Thank you for your passion and commitment To peace!
Global Peace Partners is a forum for any peace worker
from around the globe to post blogs, photos, video clips
of their work and insights of their nation.
The purpose of this forum is to reach out and respect
those who may not share the same religion, the same race,
the same nationality, the same politics and the same culture
and yet seek peace!
One of our long term goals and hopes is that College and
University Students might reach outside their comfort zones
and learn from you and gain new perspectives.

Subject:Earn Money for Our Cause when You Shop Online!

Hi everyone!

We have a really exciting opportunity to earn a lot of money for our cause just by doing what we're doing anyway this time of year - shopping for the holidays. Hundreds of websites like Target, Best Buy, and Expedia have agreed to donate a percentage of any purchase you make to our cause. All you have to do is download the Causes Toolbar and then it will track your online shopping and automatically donate a percentage to our cause. You don't have to do anything else — download the toolbar and you're done! Go to http://www.causes.com/shopping?cause_id=303031

Thanks and Happy Holidays,
Joseph F. Jarbah

I'm delighted to be a part of this group. I want to be active member of this group but how I don't know.

Hi Olive,
Thanks for your concern and invitation. This organization is established to help every child in need and not only for the children of Liberia. Right now we are focusing on Liberia due to our limited funding. We will love to extend to many countries as funding is available.
