Together We Can Change Their World
The children we work with need the opportunity to escape the cycle of poverty that their families and community have found themselves in. But poverty is complex and the root causes are varied. Children are particularly vulnerable to the worst aspects of poverty, including mental, physical and sexual abuse. Faced with this reality, many of these children will end up living or working on the streets.
Working with 13 local partners in 9 countries, the International Children’s Trust is working to change this reality. Our projects recognise that solutions are unique to every child, family and community. Our network of partners on the ground provides a strong understanding of local needs and our projects are able to adapt to these realities.
Our children are incredible young people with talent and strength. Poverty should not be allowed to prevent these children from becoming extraordinary young adults. There is no quick fix and we cannot guarantee a long-term solution, but by tackling the root causes of poverty, we are improving the child’s physical health, emotional well-being, employability and support structures. We are working to change their world.
