There are three International Organizations that I found that I feel are great resources:
1. Global Child Development Group: This organization with the support of UNICEF prepared a series of three papers that addressed the outcomes for children in poverty ridden countries. They offered suggestions on interventions, and have since 2006, have continued to update their findings and write new papers. There overall mission is to help children under five receive the education they need so that these children can have optimal child developments. The specialize in child who live in countries where there is a high amount of poverty. On the web site you can find many resources including publications and events.
I feel that I was drawn to this organization because of their mission, I feel that the information they share could be applied to children anywhere in the world.
2. UNICEF: This organization is not one that is new to me, and one that I have used many times for information. I feel that this is an amazing organization, and that they do so much for children around the world. UNICEF has been working for over 70 years, and in over 190 countries. Their main mission is to promote the rights and wellbeing of every child. The work that they have done cannot be captured by a paragraph on this blog, I feel that everyone who has an interest in child should spend some time exploring the content.
UNICEF is an organization that I have known about for years. I feel that they are a great organization that helps all children and they have contributed in so many ways to improving the life of all children.
3. ACEI: Association for Childhood Education International. This is an organization that has been around for 125 years. One of their core beliefs is that education is essential to human development. Today they focus much of their work on meeting the needs of the world most fragile children. ON their web site they have many resources available, they have publications and they explain more of the history of the organization.
What interest me most about this organization is the fact that it has been around for so long.
