When you support a child

You are not just helping them go to school and have a healthy childhood. You are supporting the whole community that the child belongs to!
We strive to build a sustainable and socially just future for every community we work with. Children's education, nutrition and protection are at the centre of our focus in all our initiatives. In fact, we measure the progress of all our work by the progress that the children and women in the communities achieve.
