Situation

The children we help are excluded from society, unable to go to school and living in abject poverty. Street children face human trafficking and child labour. Disabled children are 3 times more likely to be sexually abused. Children affected by conflict suffer severe trauma and often miss school. To survive, kids have no choice but steal food or fight for a spot to sleep. When arrested they end up in overcrowded adult prisons at risk of abuse. All these children are forced to grow up too quickly.

Solution

We work with and strengthen the capacity of visionary community leaders to implement effective, locally-relevant projects. This enables us to focus on ‘hard to reach’ children, in terms of complex needs (e.g. street children with learning difficulties) and location (urban slum, rural area). Instead of a ‘one fits all’ solution, we believe an approach tailored to each child’s unique needs is the only way to break the cycle of poverty & exclusion. We tackle root causes and create lasting change.
