Welcome to Our World

Travel and Adventure on Channel 5

Thanks to a generous donation, we sponsored their travel and adventure shows throughout the summer.

Embracing that spirit of adventure, we took you on a whistle-stop journey through our world.

Stopping off in Bangladesh, Liberia and Madagascar along the way, you met some of the amazing children we work with around the globe, who share a brief glimpse into their lives.

Meet Bolo, Alice, Nirob and Germina below and step into their worlds.

“Once the vanilla is harvested, we organise a big party with the community.”

Meet Bolo. He is a vanilla farmer and aspiring singer in Madagascar.

Bolo attends our youth association, which is empowering young people like him with skills and training.

Alice, 4, plays near her home outside White Plains, Liberia. Alice was named after Alice the midwife who delivered her.

Meet 'Small Alice'. Her mum, Etta, chose the name for her daughter because Alice the midwife was so kind to her during her first pregnancy and supportive during the birth. 

Alice is one of more than 800 children named after Alice the midwife.

Etta wants Small Alice to grow up with Alice’s drive and success.

Nirob (5)plays football in his village in rural Bangladesh.

Meet Nirob. He lives with his parents in a remote village in the north east of Bangladesh. 

With limited access to healthcare, at ten weeks old he was malnourished and sick.

But a clinic built close to their village has made it much easier for Nirob to receive proper healthcare, and his health has continued to improve.

“I think it changes people’s opinions if they see us play because they see us as strong.”

Meet Germina. She takes part in our youth association in Madagascar and plays on the football team. 

Her family are all vanilla farmers, and she’s now learning vanilla farming (and sewing) at a training centre run by our partner.

Every child deserves to grow up safe and healthy, and to become who they want to be.
