We create real and lasting change in a child’s life by tackling the root causes of child poverty. We focus on vulnerable children living in poverty, facing abuse, violence and discrimination. We tackle the physical, educational and emotional barriers to a child’s development and create strong family and community support structures. We want a world where no child has to live or work on the streets.
We may not change the world,
but we will change the world of the children we work with.

How We Work
We develop projects with local partners that tackle the root causes of child poverty in their community. While local partners understand the community needs, they often lack the capacity to provide their innovative solutions. We strengthen the capacity of our partners by pursuing funding opportunities and ensuring they are able to effectively and efficiently use those funds. We have built a network of local partners around the world who are able to share their experience and learn from each other and their solutions. We come together with a vision of a better world for our children.
We believe every child should have a safe and secure place to call home
We work with children around the world since 1967
We develop long-term local partnerships building trust and long-lasting solutions
We work with 13 local partners in Africa, Asia and Latin America, delivering real change to children’s lives. We currently work in Burkina Faso, Ghana, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Ecuador and Mexico.
