About Us

Our Vision

We envision a new paradigm within global cultures and governments that embrace, nurture, and empower children with a compassionate world view. We believe this new paradigm will occur by changing not what we see but how we see.

In order to prevent the cycle of perpetual hatred and violence, generation after generation, race, religion, politics and economics need to be perceived in a different light.

“In separateness lies the world’s great misery, in compassion lies the world's true strength.” – Buddha

By providing education, nurturing, and legal protections for the world's children, we believe WCCCI programs will help create a new world view. To understand more about the work WCCCI is doing, Read more about our work
