/R E P E A T -- Unique Global Survey Shows That Pollution And Natural Disasters Are The Top Two Environmental Concerns Of Children Across The World/

The report and the pressing environmental concerns of the children surveyed come as timely reminders as CCFC has just launched its Christmas Wish program in support of drought-ridden Burkina Faso.

"The Small Voices, Big Dreams survey has become an incredible resource for our organization as it allows us to learn from children in the communities where we work," said Lukowski. "Listening to the voices of children contributes to our understanding of how they view and experience the world and helps guide our priorities and programs. We are reminded that children can think beyond themselves and consider how their world can be improved."

Additional Survey Highlights Regarding Children's Hope and Dreams:

  • Children in developing countries tend to dream of careers that will ensure the basic needs of their community are met in the future, with one in four citing people helping professions such as a teacher, social worker or healthcare professional.
  • Children in developed countries indicated a higher desire for becoming professional athletes and entertainers than children in developing countries.




About the Small Voices, Big Dreams Survey The survey was conducted with a total of 6,204 children in 47 countries with children aged 10 to 12. This included 36 developing nations in Africa, Asia and the Americas, as well as 11 developed countries. To see the survey, visit Small Voices Big Dreams.
