JustWorld International is devoted to breaking the cycle of poverty by funding local partners around the world helping children thrive.

Primarily through the international equestrian community, JustWorld supports basic education, nutrition, health & hygiene, and cultural development programs for children in impoverished communities in Cambodia, Guatemala, and Honduras.  

Besides helping more than 6,500 children receive essential needs, JustWorld provides a unique opportunity for equestrians and individuals to learn about, experience, and contribute to a global campaign against poverty through our JustWorld Member and JustWorld Ambassador programs.

JustWorld is grateful to be given the platform for awareness and fundraising through our generous sponsors and partners. World-class equestrian events around the world host JustWorld during their prestigious events, and our corporate donors and service sponsors help support the growth of our projects in numerous ways.

Our Commitment to Transparency

We want our donors to be comfortable and confident when giving to JustWorld. That is why we pride ourselves on maintaining the utmost in financial transparency – making our financial documents available for review for all donors so they can see just how fiscally responsible we are and that their donations are making the most impact with our project partners around the world.


JustWorld is proud to have received the Platinum Seal of Transparency – the highest level of recognition – from Guidestar. Guidestar is the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations. They collect information on nonprofits from the IRS and other sources and organizes it into one of the most respected databases of information about nonprofits.


Charity Navigator is the nation’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. In a quest to help donors, their team of professional analysts examines tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents. They’ve used this knowledge to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess over 8,000 charities. JustWorld is not yet eligible for their rating yet because we have not yet exceeded $1 million in revenue. We hope to accomplish that this year. Please click here to help us reach this monumental goal!
