Children

Our projects help communities around the world to build a positive future for their children providing an escape from lives of extreme poverty and suffering.

Our projects help communities around the world to build a positive future for their children providing an escape from lives of extreme poverty and suffering. 

We support a number of initiatives which make a profound difference to the lives of the next generation. These include care homes which look after children who have been victims of abuse, abandonment, hunger or have lost their parents. As well as providing food, shelter, clothing and medical treatment, these centres seek to reintegrate the children safely back into society, where possible with their families, and prepare them for adulthood by paying school fees and teaching vocational skills.  

Other programmes support children with disabilities or from low-income families to interact with their peers in social environments and invest in their futures through education and vocational training.
