Donors and Supporters


Children and adolescents (under the age of 18) comprise more than one-third of the global population and more than half the populations in many developing countries. Yet, programs which seek to encourage their engagement and empower them to think independently and take action to protect and preserve their local environments, reducing risk to the increasing threats of climate change and water scarcity are few and far between, and those that are doing great work are seriously underfunded.

Our donors and supporters are people just like you! They are organizations and individuals who understand their obligation to ensure healthy ecosystems and economic opportunities for present and future generations of children are the best hope for our planet! Help us to applaud our supporters, donate today and please visit our Take Action! Pages to get involved!

UNFCU’s support for the Global Action Classroom project

UNFCU programmatic support will enable ECI and partners to expand the scope of the Global Action Classroom project. The grant enables participating classrooms to access the internet, cameras to record their local actions, and an environmental education tool kit complete with tree saplings, water test kits and participatory classroom learning materials. Additional schools are slated to join the conversation throughout the course of the school year and interested groups are encouraged to contact Earth Child Institute directly.
