THE NEED

Children Are Suffering From Afflictions That Are Treatable

Millions of children are suffering from war, poverty, neglect and disease. Many of them struggle with debilitating but treatable medical problems. There is a severe, often fatal gap—and a profound lack of innovative life changing product for children in need and their caregivers—in the coordination and delivery of vital resources. Countless people and organizations are working tirelessly to provide their care and expertise at home and on the front lines.  However, without comprehensive coordination and communication, these efforts often fail to create sustainable social impact.


The Challenge

Create An Innovative System That Connects, Facilitates and Manages The Needs Of These Children

The challenge is to efficiently and systematically connect any child of any background living anywhere in the world to the vital resources they require for their wellbeing.


TGCF'S RESPONSE

Fill The Gap — Scale The Solution To The Magnitude Of The Problem

With two decades of front-line experience, TGCF has gained an in-depth understanding of the needs of children—what works, what doesn’t—and the optimal means for meeting many of those needs with sustainable impact. The Foundation has been working through the CREC manual network with partners and children from North and South America, Asia, Africa and Europe and, most recently, the Middle East, connecting children to pro-bono and negotiated care on a case-by-case basis. TGCF has now partnered with innovators in technology and communications to systematize the articulation and delivery of vital resources. These partnerships will facilitate the transition of the CREC network into a connective digital platform that will coordinate aid and close the gap between children in need and people and organizations ready to help them.

Goal

The Grace Children's Foundation's (TGCF) goal is simple — to connect children in need to people and organizations ready to help them. We constantly seek solutions for expanding our reach and making our impact stronger. We ask ourselves one important question: "How do we grow our reach and efficiently and systematically connect any child in need to the vital resources they need for their well-being?"

Vision

The CREC connective digital platform is envisioned as the go-to source for pediatric health care,  exponentially increasing the number of children served globally. Thank you for sharing in our vision to see the children to a place where they may elevate themselves beyond survival, to a place where they will flourish and have a chance for lives with dignity and purpose.
