Secular child charities

I'm in Canada, with enough income that I'm looking into "sponsor a child" organizations that help children in third world countries. There are plenty, but I am still having issues. Specifically regarding donation and religion.

The vast majority of these organizations are Christian organizations, which I have no huge issue with, but I'd prefer something secular. I don't want my aid money to be based on whether the child's family is willing to convert, or even just listen to Bible lessons. I don't want to have contingencies on the money I send.
So. Anyone know any Canadian (or international organizations that take CD$) secular charities of this sort?
