What we do

The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation (CNCF) is a partnership of people dedicated to serving children in need and those at risk of sexual and commercial exploitation, by providing emergency and long-term shelter, medical care, nutritional rehabilitation, educational opportunities, vocational training, and job placement. We believe all children have the right to happy and safe childhood so they may live in peace and surrounded by love.

Child Sponsorship Programmes in Vietnam and Mongolia

The CNCF Child Sponsorship Programme was first established in 1996 in Vietnam and a year later it was introduced in Mongolia to assist and encourage young, at risk street children to gain an education and continue in the mainstream schooling system.

For just USD$38 per month provides a better quality of life for a child, by providing access to education, emergency medical assistance and an improved quality of home life. These goals are achieved within the context of the child's family and community.

CNCF strongly believes in the importance of helping people change their own lives. As such, the needs of each individual child and family are different and can be tailored for the child's needs. For example, a child who is working needs to be able to access a special alternative education programme with flexible hours, while older children need meaningful vocational training, health care, family life education and job placement assistance.

Healthcare

• CNCF recognises the central role of health and overall wellbeing in both individual and community
development. Individuals whose health care needs are met, lead more fulfilling lives and can
contribute more freely to the community’s over-all productivity.
 
• Ensuring that more children have access to quality healthcare is of particular importance to CNCF
as a healthy start in life lays the foundation for healthy growth and development. Conversely,
children who are excluded from the healthcare system find it difficult to catch up later in life,
placing untenable burdens on their families and communities
 
• Attitudes of families and communities towards children with a disability are focused towards care
rather than on an independence model of sustainable life skills. Within CNCF programmes we offer a
unique independence focused environment for these children and their families – the chance to reach
their potential while accessing high-standard of health services through CNCF and encouraging the
importance of attending health awareness seminars and training.

Education


• CNCF believes that every child regardless of circumstances deserves a quality education. Access
to a good education remains uneven for the children we work with. Hidden fees such as
transportation, uniforms and school supplies make school practically unaffordable for the poorest
families.
 
• CNCF’s grassroots approach is that we believe that education is more than just schooling and our
programmes ensure that children receive a holistic education that allows them to flourish in all
aspects of learning and development.
 
• Our education programmes facilitate academic achievement as well as emotional, creative,
personal, and social development. We also support the children’s families, helping them understand
the importance of educating their children and ensuring that their children remain in school,
excel, and attain the knowledge and skills necessary to lead a healthy independent life.
 
• CNCF passionately advocates that education is essential in breaking the cycle
of poverty.
 

'When children are educated, they possess something which cannot be lost or taken away from them and which offers them some protection from exploitation and abuse. They will have more power in the labour market; they will be better equipped to provide for themselves in a way which protects their integrity and their dignity" - Christina Noble

Due to their lack of financial resources and the daily pressures, children in need often either never attend school or drop out at an early age. Education is crucial to the development of any child and is a basic human right. Without education a child has no means to develop and pursue their chosen path in life or at the very least, escape the destructive cycle of poverty. The social influences and encouragement a child

 

Community & Development

• CNCF empowers poor communities with sustainable futures through the provision of construction and
equipping of education and medical facilities, micro-finance loans, family support and development
and water sanitation, through our community development programmes.
 
• Children grow and thrive in the context of close and dependable relationships. These
relationships must provide love and nurturance, security, responsive interaction, and encouragement
for exploration. A child’s primary experience with this kind of relationship should come from the
home and its community whenever possible.
 
• CNCF advocates that in order to help a child reach its full potential one must work closely with
their families and communities where in
place.
