Dec 5, 2023

Transforming Lives Through Innovative and Impactful Child-Sponsorship Strategies

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, December 4, 2023 / — – The International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF), a leading Canadian charitable organization, proudly announces the launch of its new child-sponsorship program, “Every Child Counts.” This groundbreaking initiative marks a historic moment for IDRF, as it is the organization’s first child-sponsorship program in its 40-year history.

Every Child Counts transcends the traditional boundaries of child sponsorship, embodying a new era of compassionate philanthropy. This innovative program is not merely about financial support; it represents a commitment to providing comprehensive care that nurtures a child’s educational, healthcare, and developmental needs.

Mahmood Qasim, CEO of IDRF, expressed his enthusiasm for Every Child Counts, stating, “In our 40-year journey, we’ve taken our time to craft a child-sponsorship program that goes beyond convention. Every Child Counts is not just about helping children survive; it’s about empowering them to thrive. We’ve meticulously designed this program to break free from the limitations of traditional models, ensuring that our donors are not just contributing financially but are actively participating in shaping the future of these young lives.”

The Every Child Counts program aims to create a lasting impact, not only on individual children but on entire communities. By fostering sustainable development, IDRF seeks to unleash a ripple effect of positive change that transforms lives and futures. While the primary focus is on the well-being and development of each sponsored child, the overarching goal is to create a holistic and sustainable impact on entire communities. IDRF recognizes that the transformation of lives and futures goes hand in hand with the development of the communities in which these children reside.

In essence, the Every Child Counts program is a beacon of hope, not only for the sponsored children but for the communities they belong to. This transformative process extends beyond the immediate sponsorship period, leaving a lasting legacy of improved living standards, increased educational attainment, and enhanced socio-economic conditions. It represents a commitment to breaking the cycle of poverty and creating a future where every child counts, not just in their own lives but in the collective narrative of progress and prosperity for entire communities.
