Help a Tomodachi
The world has made great progress for children.
More children are alive and thriving today than ever before.
But here's the problem.
Millions of children around the world still aren't getting what they deserve. We're talking about children in need. Dying, when the world knows how to save them. Vulnerable children in poverty. Denied an education. Forced to flee the violence. Orphaned, abused, abandoned. Children with no reason to smile. No hope for the future.
The world's children deserve better.
Every day, 16,000 children die before their 5th birthday, mostly from preventable causes.
1 in 6 children worldwide isn’t in school, missing out on critical learning.
Conflict is forcing 1 in 80 children to flee, risking everything just to survive.
When you buy clothes at Tomodachi, you’re investing in a future for every last child.
Here’s how it works: Nearly 90% of every dollar you give goes straight to our mission – helping children grow up healthy, learning and safe. This percentage is adjusted each year end – as of 2017, it is 86%. The rest? We use to support the mission – running our programs and raising funds to help more children.
