Careforce International


Careforce International is a force of people devoted to bringing help, healing and hope to children in need around the world.

We are passionate about changing lives the lives of children in need and lives of people who are willing to BE THE ONE to help meet the needs of those children.

We engage in partnerships with projects, individuals and organizations in areas where there are children living in poverty, without any opportunity to realize their potential. We assist by providing resources (people, items, funds), strategic planning, training which enable our projects to better support the children in their care. The projects in which we are actively engaged are:

  1. The Village of Hope, Burkina Faso, West Africa
  2. The Lighthouse School, Los Alcarrizos, Dominican Republic
  3. Mully Children's Family, Kenya, East Africa
  4. The Child Nutrition Program, El Cercado, Dominican Republic
  5. First Nations Initiatives, Aroland and Six Nations First Nations, Ontario, Canada


Children should not be anonymous. They should be given the chance to be healthy, to learn, to grow and to succeed. In the developing world however, children who get these chances are few and far between. By supporting Careforce International you can play a significant role in providing food, clean water, shelter, clothing, formal education and vocational training and much more to children who deserve no less. Careforce International provides a number of different ways for you to get involved you can visit one of our projects on a 1-2 week TEAM EXPERIENCE or choose to support the children at one of our projects through our SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM.
