We've been working here since 1983, responding to emergencies, fighting for children's rights and increasing access to basic education.

Child poverty

We focus on life-saving relief in the aftermath of disasters, helping affected children and their families with food, cash transfers, essential items and child-friendly spaces for learning and play.


We're supporting the government and local partners to increase access to basic education, with renewed focus on helping children with disabilities (including providing supporting equipment such as Braille machines) or those based in remote places. 


Our programmes focus on maternal and newborn health, as well as sexual and reproductive education. We work to ensure no mother dies while giving birth, that no child dies of preventable causes before their fifth birthday and gets adequate nutrition to ensure health, growth and development.
