Countless children around the world are suffering from extreme poverty. We’re on a mission to change that. We support children’s programs in some of the world’s poorest communities, holistically fighting poverty through nutritious meals, safe drinking water, healthcare, and education in Cuba, Haiti, Kenya, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Uganda.

Why we give internationally

While we fully believe in local charity, we realize the extraordinary power the American dollar has in developing countries across the world. When the average family in an impoverished country lives off $1 a day, you can count on your donation making a world of difference for them. Government support systems we take for granted in the U.S simply do not exist in the countries we serve, so without our programs these children would literally miss meals, school, and an opportunity for a better future. 


Since 2016, Sell a Home, Save a Child Members have raised over $2.6 million for children living in poverty.


By investing in children, we’re impacting the world today and building a brighter tomorrow. 100% of Sell a Home, Save a Child donations go to Forward Edge International, a highly accredited 501(c)(3) relief and development organization.
