All for Children sums up our hopes and dreams and the partnerships we seek to build. All that we do, we do for children… and we work at it with all of our heart, because children deserve nothing less. We believe that all people share in a universal calling to care for all the children of our world, so all of the tools and approaches we offer are designed to bring people together—in all their wonderous diversity—to build a better world for children.
