6 Ways to Change the World for Children

1. Sponsor a child or donate.

You can transform the life of a child and his or her community right now by deciding to sponsor or making a contribution. In the left sidebar you will find pictures of children for whom hope is just a click away. More information about DCI’s Sun Child program can be found here. You can also make a contribution of any amount by clicking the blue Donate button at the top of the page. For more information about the impact your contribution helps support, click here.

2. Volunteer or intern.

DCI is always looking for compassionate and motivated volunteers such as yourself. Our volunteers choose their type of involvement and level of commitment by working with DCI to prepare a Personal Action plan. You can volunteer locally, from a distance, or in Bangladesh at one of our project areas.

3. Start a DCI chapter in your town or on your college campus.

DCI chapters spread awareness of our mission and mobilize greater support for children. We have chapters in cities all across the United States, which were formed by motivated volunteers like you! It is easy to start your own chapter – click here to find out how!

4. Attend an event.

 You can check our Events page for information about our upcoming gatherings, or contact your nearest DCI chapter to attend a meeting. We also encourage you to attend our upcoming 2011 Conference on Child Rights & Sight at Yale University. This will be an exciting entry point into the field of child rights and development, as well as a great opportunity for professional networking.

5. Subscribe to our e-newsletter.

One of the best ways to get involved is to stay informed about DCI’s activities and become better acquainted with how our programs work. The more you know, the easier it will be for you to identify the type of involvement that is best for you!

6. Get connected to DCI on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Flickr.

Joining our online community is the best way to stay up to date on DCI’s activities and take part in exciting conversation on child rights and international development. Social networking makes it easier than ever to share, and if you like what you see, we encourage you to tell your friends about us too!
