Our pioneering programs address children’s unique needs, giving them a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We are outspoken champions for children, ensuring their voices are heard and their issues are given top priority.

In 2016 alone, our work reached almost 650,000 children and just under 50,000 adults.
