About Child United
Child United was founded by Christine Umayam in Seattle, Washington (USA) on May 1, 2007. It is a volunteer-led humanitarian organization whose main mission is to empower the poorest children in the developing world, believing that educating a child will lead them, their family and eventually their community out of poverty.
They also provide disaster relief assistance to countries in desperate need. Child United has helped thousands of families so far, supplied dozens of schools with books and educational supplies, provided sponsorships for students every month, and helped build a learning center. Christine was recognized in 2011 by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society for her work overseas.
