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 migration, and malnutrition. 

For children who have seen the devastation of war in their communities or been forced to flee their homes due to violence, their development is impacted severely due to the trauma and stress. 

You can help lead the way to a solution that helps migrant and refugee children, and all children overseas, to thrive. 

How? The Global Child Thrive Act (H.R. 4864) moved out of the House Foreign Affairs Committee at the end of 2019 and needs your continued support to pass in the full House, so it's the perfect time to urge your Representative to support and pass the Global Child Thrive Act (H.R. 4864).

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 Representative today to help children worldwide.
