Our work

We protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children living through conflict. We go to the hardest to reach places to support those who are hardest hit.

We aim to be there for children who need us most, when they need us most.

When conflict breaks out, we aim to reach children as early as possible and stay on to support them long after the cameras have gone home. We help keep children safe and help them to heal and learn. 

We understand children’s needs, respect and stand up for their rights, and put them at the centre of everything we do – because just one child caught up in conflict is one child too many.
