Amway has been committed to providing people around the globe with hope and opportunity for more than five decades. In 2003, Amway chose to focus its charitable efforts on the single global social cause of helping children live better lives by harnessing the power of interpersonal and business relationships made possible by Amway distributors and employees.

"Amway distributors and employees around the world have achieved the incredible milestone of positively impacting the lives of 10 million children," said Steve Van Andel, Amway chairman. "Amway people are truly remarkable and we are impressed and humbled by their gifts of time and talent to help children live better lives."

Since the AMWAY ONE BY ONE Program was launched in 2003, the Campaign's focus has been to help children in need. Amway distributors and employees have impacted 10 million lives by volunteering for hundreds of projects.  They include providing kitchen facilities to help prepare nutritional meals to children in rural China, supporting welfare centers in South Korea and building homes for families in Latin America. Amway people have given life-saving immunizations to children in Africa and funded life-changing medical programs in Asia. Children with disabilities are able to compete in sports thanks to programs supported by Amway volunteers in the US and Russia. Amway distributors and employees provide books to libraries in remote areas in Thailand and South Africa. Amway people have made play possible by sponsoring afterschool programs and building playgrounds throughout North America and Europe.

"Each child helped and each life impacted is a testament to the incredible giving spirit of Amway distributors and employees," said Doug DeVos, Amway president. "We are inspired by these global citizens as they continue to make a difference around the world, one child at a time."
