All children should be able to grow and thrive. 

The U.S. has been a leader in addressing global poverty and providing life-saving aid to millions of children worldwide, but children globally are still at risk of not being able to reach their full potential due to poverty, conflict, forced displacement and malnutrition. 

For children who are hungry and do not receive nutritious food every day during the critical early childhood years, their development is impacted severely and has negative lifelong consequences. 

You can help lead the way to a solution that helps children who are hunger and malnourished, and all children overseas, to thrive. 

How? The Global Child Thrive Act (S. 2715) is tentatively on the agenda of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to be taken up in their next business meeting in early August, so it's the perfect time to urge your Senators to support the Global Child Thrive Act (S. 2715).

The Global Child Thrive Act will mandate integrating Early Childhood Development activities into U.S. government-funded international programming for children. 

Early Childhood Development activities include helping children to develop with play, exploring colors, music and nurturing care from caregivers.  

Your voice will make a difference. Send an email to your Senators today to help children worldwide.
