Mission: "Help children who are compromised in their development to access their full potential".
To help children in these areas not just learn how to survive their life, but to thrive in areas suitable for their re-development.
Children’s Illness Support Health Program
When a child has been through surgery and consumed many drugs in their system they need to regain their energy and fuel the body with Superfoods to repair the vital organs in the body. They also need to feel like they are somehow a part of life considering that all they know is going from home to hospital. We do this by walking the child and their family through the following:-
a) Counselling and Bereavement
b) Supply the child with Superfoods to boost the immune system and renew the internal body from the support medication during dramatic surgery.
c) To Gift each child with something that they have dreamed of having.
d) Take the kids Whale Watching
e) Take the kids to Seaworld to Swim with Dolphins.
f) Take the kids to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to play with the animals

Staff Rehabilitation Employment Program
We employ individuals to fundraise for us who cannot hold down a normal job because of the following issues:-
· Alcohol and Drug Addiction
· Disabilities or Impaired by accidents
· Mental and Emotional Breakdowns
· Families and Children Suffering Hardship
Childs Vision employs and re-employs staff who cannot hold down a normal job because they may fall back into their bad habit patterns because of the above listed reasons.
When they come out of their addictive state and realize they need immediate work Childs Vision employs and counsels them so they can earn immediate income so they may get back on their feet again.
This program ensures that as a charitable organization, as a whole Childs Vision is supporting its local community in all areas.
Donors can feel good knowing that even Childs Visions staff income is also being used in a charitable fashion through our Staff Rehabilitation Employment Program. Nearly every employee of Childs Vision has gone through some sort of breakdown, medical condition, drug or alcohol addiction or loss of a family member.
Employees of Childs Vision begin to feel good about them self as they help raise funds for kids with life threatening illness at the same time helping themselves get back on their feet by supporting their local community and becoming a benefit to society.
General Mission: To raise funds for projects that will provide sustainable benefits to the local children in Australia. Our approach is to use our alliances in Australia that are in need to ensure that our sponsored projects are completed efficiently and effectively so the children will receive the ultimate benefit.
Aboriginal Art Classes for children and elderly is a project for children to learn about Aboriginal Culture and learn how to create sellable Aboriginal art. It brings indigenous heritage closer to children, gives them a place to express their feelings and learn about both art and history.
Childs Vision employs an Aboriginal teacher, therefore creates workplaces for Aboriginal people, and pays for all the necessary painting equipment IE Canvases, Paint, Didgeridoo wood, Boomerang wood. The art is then sold at local markets and all income is used to support them and their local community.
