We change the lives of women and children for good, by providing long term support in developing countries, so communities can overcome the obstacles holding them back.
How are we different?
We don’t impose solutions. We work with communities over many years to strengthen their own efforts to throw off poverty.
We see poverty as an injustice and poor people as our partners in tackling the causes of poverty.
Protecting women from violence is an integral part of all our work, including in emergencies.
We have a committed, long-term supporter base.
We do not have any religious or political affiliations.
We see on the ground how the system is holding women back and work at all levels to help change the system in their favour.
Supporting women in a community has a powerful effect on everybody, lifting up their children, their families and future generations
We make sure girls go to and stay in school. We work with communities to end gender-based violence. And we train women in the skills they need to earn a living.
Everyday we see problems women face that hold them back and we campaign at every level to tackle these issues, including to end child marriage, eradicate female genital mutilation and stop violence against women.
Because of Child Sponsors communities where we work know that they can rely on regular financial support. This allows them to plan ahead and transform their lives in a sustainable way. It gives all the children in that community the best possible chance in the future.
