"Build for Tomorrow" Build-a-School Project
Staggering percentages of children in each country are illiterate and have never attended a school. Hundreds of thousands of others are deprived of valuable skills at an early age because their families cannot afford to send them to school. With your help, WCO will build schools, provide books and writing material, train teachers, and give children the gift of education. read more
Libraries are invaluable to a strong society, as they provide a place where people can gather and congregate, voice their opinions, research their world, and meet other like-minded people. The WCO believes this is invaluable
Project World Children
We will be travelling to remote parts of China and Taiwan with a group of writers, photographers, and videographers. They will document the condition of the children living there and write a book, produce a documentary, and have a photo exhibition.
My First Books (130 Books)
The My First Books project was started a couple years ago by Andrew and Patrick. The book series is a series of 130 books designed to bridge the gap between the time when the child cannot read, and the time when the child can read without assistance. The 130 books have already been completed, and we are currently seeking funding to print copies and distribute them freely.
Attend the WCO World Children's Summit
We are currently organizing a large meeting to bring the educational issues of the world's children up into the spotlight. This project is still in the initial planning stage. Many speakers will come talk about a variety of challenging educational issues facing children today, and we will start organizing more WCO projects on a large scale.

Drawing and Writing Contests
Art and literature are part of the core of human culture, and both have power to shake the world. Get your school or friends to participate in WCO’s drawing and writing contests to increase awareness of WCO and the children we serve. Winning work will be published into a booklet, printed onto WCO merchandise, and used in our promotion campaigns.
Computers are an important element in creating a strong society, as computer literate people can get higher paying jobs and can follow more opportunities. Those who learn how to access the Internet and email can also build communication links with people all over the globe. read more
At the WCO we believe that every child should have the opportunity to move onto advanced education, in order to learn the skills that will help them to improve their lives.
That’s why the WCO offers scholarships to children who are eager to further their education but due to circumstances out with their control don’t have the money or resources to do so. read more
