The International Children’s Trust was founded in 1967 by a group of individuals who felt strongly that children should be given the best chance possible in life. They wanted to make a difference to individual children whose lives were severely affected by poverty.
Since then, the International Children’s Trust has sought to create real and lasting change in children’s lives by tackling the root causes of child poverty. We have done this by working with some of the most vulnerable children in each community who face abuse, destitution and discrimination.
We continue to tackle the physical, educational and emotional barriers to a child’s development and work to create strong family and community support structures. We work to prevent children from living and working on the streets.
