Our Story

Children’s World Impact was started in 2006 by Tyson and Jenny Ray. Originally an independent family foundation, the Rays decided to make the organization a public 501(c)(3) after visiting the country of Haiti shortly after the devastating earthquake that hit that country in January of 2010. The need was evident, and the Rays decide to open the foundation to the public in order to increase the possible impact.

Originally working mainly with orphans, the organization extended its reach to worldwide widows in 2011. That is the year work began on a project in Ghana, Africa, which was designed to give widows in the Upper West Region of that country self-supporting income opportunities. Developed and financed over the course of three years, this project is now thriving and self-sustaining, supporting women in seven local villages throughout that area in Ghana.

In addition to the continued work in Haiti and Ghana, Children’s World Impact has also done work in Ecuador, Mexico, Kenya, and Uganda. Always with an eye on the mission of the organization, Children’s World Impact seeks to “break the cycle of poverty” through care and community development to benefit widows and orphans and impact the lives of the neglected. Over the years the impact has included supplying food and clean water, clothing, shelter, and improved medical care, as well as building homes and schools. The organization has also worked to create a mico-loan program for women in Ghana in order to assist them in entrepreneurial endeavors to support themselves and their dependent children.
