what we do

We are experts in education, economic empowerment and protection programming. Our interventions are integrated to confront challenges, assuring safety as we afford access to schooling.

By coupling instantaneous change for children with an increase in the capacities of caregivers, communities and schools we support children to be safe, in school and learning in the long term.

where we work

We seek out situations where there are gaps between aid, assistance and need and, as such, are often one of the only organisations supporting children in these tough circumstances.

We prioritise children in the most marginalised populations and currently work in over 20 countries across sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Europe.

who we work with

We work with an expanding network of 95+ local organisations and a focus on the power and purpose of inspirational local level organisations sits at the heart of all we do – and has done so since our first partnership in Sierra Leone in 2008.

We work in close collaboration with leading agencies, leveraging our experience and expertise to issue global guidance on working with local level organisations.
