Every child has the same potential, but not all have the opportunity to realise it. Our work focuses on the needs of all children, but especially the most marginalised, because we believe in a world where every child is healthy, has the opportunity to learn, and is safe from violence, abuse and exploitation.
Drawing on close to a century of experience, we work to relieve the suffering of children affected by war and natural disaster. We create lasting change by making sure children are healthy, protected and have the opportunity to learn.
Today, 58 million children are still out of school
22,000 children die each day due to poverty
Over the past two decades, disasters have killed more than 1.3 million people
The most dangerous day in a child's life is the day it is born
Meet some of the brave children who are doing everything they can to survive, learn and grow in the most difficult places in the world. By transforming children's lives, we change the course of their future and ours.
