Wealthy Healthy Outreach

Championing Community Children (C3) was founded in 2006 by International Children’s Peace Prize Winner 2012 Kesz Valdez. He leads the organization together with other children. C3 works with street children in different communities to increase the children’s knowledge about health, the importance of education, children’s rights and community interests.

C3 focuses on improving the life conditions of street children an potential street children through prevention and attention. This youth organization embodies the principle of “CHANGING THE WORLD, ONE HEART AT A TIME” by spearheading  programs  and  projects  that  uphold  and  foster  children’s  rights,  children empowerment and participation around the world. Championing Community Children creates a structured way of reaching a child in need.

With its holistic  approach  to  address  the  rights  of  a  child,  C3  focused  on  its  Wealthy  Healthy  Outreach along  with  its  supplementary  projects  to  aid  and  address  their  rights.  The Wealthy Healthy Outreach program teaches children about hygiene, the importance of good nutrition and the rights of children. During the program, C3 teaches a few of the children in the community how to be a leader and how they can facilitate participation in the community. After six months these new leaders can continue the program and C3 will move to a new community. In addition, C3 also distributes ‘Gifts of Hope’ to the children, including soap, a tooth brush and school supplies.
