About Us > Nondiscrimination Policy

Celebrating our work within the context of peace and religious diversity

All religious scriptures teach us that we have a duty to care for children and to show compassion to all people regardless of their faith, ethnicity or gender.  When caring for children it is through cooperation of our respective faiths that we are able to provide the support necessary to help lift children from poverty.

In these times of great conflict and human rights abuses, we as people of faith – men and women, old and young, black and white, rich and poor – come together in a spirit of partnership to bring relief to orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children around the world.

Nondiscrimination Policy:

Bless the Children does not discriminate in any of its programs, procedures, or practices on the basis of age, color, race, sex, disability, national or ethnic origin, religious or political affiliation.  We seek to work with those whose sincere goal it is to help children escape the horrors of poverty.

As an international interfaith, nondenominational humanitarian organization dedicated to assisting orphaned and impoverished children worldwide, Bless the Children acknowledges and respects the religious beliefs of individuals and their groups.  It is through our shared interest in helping children that together we are able to provide aid to the smallest victims of poverty.  We know from long experience that the communities we help have little means to support themselves, however it is typically their religious beliefs that give them faith and hope that a better future will come.

Therefore, it is our policy to work with all people who wish to help vulnerable children have the opportunity that a healthy, educated life affords and we respect the beliefs of those we serve. We know their beliefs are their foundation and are what hold their fragile communities together.  Many times we have witnessed villagers with nothing but faith who worked very hard, knowing one day help would come.  It is our honor to help those who help themselves, and believe and hope for positive change.

It is unlawful for someone to discriminate against another because of his or her religion or belief (or because he or she has no religion or belief). This anti-discrimination requirement applies to all our efforts:

* in any aspect of employment or partnership
* when goods, facilities and services are being provided
* in using or disposing of premises, or
* when exercising public functions.

The staff and volunteers of Bless the Children look forward to working and partnering with anyone who is sincerely dedicated to helping children around the world through improved health, nutrition and education.
