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.

contribute more freely to the community’s over-all productivity.
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
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.

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.
'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
