Ending Child Poverty

Empowering vulnerable children and communities to reach their full potential

Supporting the vulnerable

Our focus is to help the most vulnerable children overcome poverty and experience fullness of life. We help children of all backgrounds, even in the most dangerous places, inspired by our Christian faith.

We tackle child poverty at its roots. With your support, we come alongside communities to bring lifesaving healthcare, clean water, nutrition, quality education, child protection and ways for families to make a living. 

We empower communities to set their own goals for transformation and stay for up to 15 years to ensure families are self-sufficient, healthy and thriving when we leave. Because we empower children and their community, the changes we make together last.

We focus on efforts to end child poverty:

Together we’ve impacted the lives of over 200 million vulnerable children by tackling the root causes of poverty.

Sponsor a child like Nathan today, and improve their life forever

Your support empowers your sponsored child’s community,
equipping them so that progress made continues, long after we’ve left.

A brighter future is possible, but the need is acute

Our focus is on reaching children who are most vulnerable, who suffer most acutely the hardships that extreme poverty brings. By supporting them and their whole community, we empower people to break free from poverty and experience the fullness of life.
