A Catalyst for the Movement to Improve the Well-Being of America’s Children


Child’s World America is a member-based nonprofit organization committed to improving children’s lives in the U.S. We promote the appreciation of children’s perspectives and foster a better understanding of childhood experience by facilitating collaboration and dialogue between individuals, professionals, and organizations committed to helping children.

We seek to help create and support a community that speaks with a united voice on behalf of children aged 0-18, educating society and advocating for child-centered public policies. Our goal is to catalyze the measurable improvement of child well-being in America.


Founding Premise

In 2013, UNICEF’s ranking of child well-being in rich countries placed the U.S. in 26th place out of 29. The ranking is based on multiple indicators spanning health, housing, education, behavioral risks, and material well-being. Child’s World America was founded on the premise that the majority of people in the U.S. are unaware that the nation is failing its children. We believe the richest country in the world should be the best place in the world to be a child. Our goal is to raise professional and public awareness of the challenges to child well-being in the U.S., and to inspire change through information sharing and professional partnership.


Vision

Child’s World America envisions an American society where children are valued as individuals in the present and collectively as the embodiment of our future, and where their perspectives, rights, needs, welfare, and aspirations are given the highest priority. We are committed to helping the U.S. continually improve its rank among the richest countries tracked by and reported on by UNICEF. We would like to see it placed among the top-ten countries by 2025.
