If you’ve been keeping up with our doings, you’ve probably heard about our Child-Friendly Faith Communities Designation Program. Now we’re launching a funding campaign that allows you to contribute directly to this unique curriculum! Specially designed for faith communities, the Designation Program teaches about child development and all forms of maltreatment. It includes workshops that help religious organizations develop effective child abuse prevention policies and programs that benefit children and families. Plus, each participant that completes the program is designated as a Child-Friendly Faith Community and promoted as a role model in child protection!

But we can’t do this work without your contribution. Please give what you can so we can complete development of the Designation Program and offer it for free to any faith community that wants to be part of a Child-Friendly Faith movement. To donate, just click on the image.

Please give to the Child-Friendly Faith Communities Designation Program campaign!
