AFTER PERSONALLY WITNESSING THE DEPRIVATION OF CHILDREN IN GUATEMALA, OUR FOUNDER, JEANNE CLARKE WOOD ESTABLISHED CHILDREN INCORPORATED IN 1964.
Out of her home in Richmond, Virginia, Ms. Wood began writing letters and seeking assistance for the 95 children she met on her journey to Guatemala. This became the first Children Incorporated project.
We have stayed true to Ms. Wood’s vision for almost fifty years: Children Incorporated envisions a world in which each and every child has the education, resources, and opportunity to build a better life.
