Message from Donald H. Whitney, Founder
To friends, family and supporters of the World Children’s Center:
After acquiring and developing 720 acres in West Georgia these past few years to build the World Children’s Center, at this time and based on the current global and national healthcare challenges of Covid-19, the WCC has decided to initiate THE WORLD CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION in order to begin serving homeless, orphaned, trafficked and neglected children in crisis much sooner.
"While I have always desired to positively impact the lives of thousands of suffering children one at a time on this breathtaking sustainable campus, at this time there has not been the necessary financial support to move the project to the next level" says founder and president, Donald Whitney.
The current WCC website will stay in place through 2023. The upcoming World Children’s Foundation website will lay out the role of the WCF, which is to partner with well-established, measurable and successful existing organizations whose missions are aligned to the original purpose of the World Children’s Center
"For those that have faithfully supported our WCC work over the years, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart"
Donors making a contribution of $50 or more to support the construction of our student homes will be recognized on a commemorative plaque to be located at the World Children's Center.
The World Children's Center mission is to build programs that foster education, provide housing and shelter, as well as ensure the safety of underserved children. The World Children's Center believes that every child should have the opportunity to grow in a safe, stable environment, have equal access to education and quality health care, and experience meaningful and productive work throughout his or her life.
When completely built, the World Children's Center Academy will educate, provide housing and enrichment/character-building programs, as well food and clothing to an estimated 800 children.
