We help children who are displaced, or migrating with their parents or on their own, and we raise awareness of the risks involved.
We tackle exploitation such as trafficking and hazardous child labour, and help give children back their childhood
We work to make schools safe places for girls, free from violence and exploitation,
In emergencies, we set up Children Friendly spaces - safe spaces to help children who have been traumatised by their experiences.
Where there is war or disaster, we reunite children with their families when they have been separated. We help protect children who are at risk of sexual violence or recruitment into armed groups.
