What We Do

Releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name

Nearly 400 million children are currently living in extreme poverty.

They’re being denied the right to grow up strong and healthy. Robbed of their time to play and imagine. And prevented from sitting in a classroom and learning.

From the womb to early adulthood, we give children born into the toughest of circumstances the opportunities they deserve.

Partnering with the local church

Our local church partners ensure our support reaches the children who need it most. Together, we provide children with exceptional care in every area of their lives: their minds, bodies and relationships.

Child Survival Programme

We reach at-risk children even before they’ve been born. Through the provision of pre and post-natal care, nutrition, vaccinations plus critical support and training for mums, we give children the best start in life.


HELP BABIES SURVIVE

Child Development Sponsorship Programme

We connect one child born into the vulnerability of poverty with one sponsor. By sponsoring a child, you send them child to school, feed them nutritious meals and protect their health with regular medical check-ups. You’ll see the difference you’re making over time through letters and photos.

Respond

Poverty is complicated. Sometimes the children in our child survival and sponsorship programmes have needs beyond the regular care we provide. RESPOND equips us to take action in emergencies. From the provision of safe drinking water, initiatives to tackle malnutrition or emergency relief after a disaster, RESPOND saves lives.
