Despair induced by poverty. Suffering from trauma due to conflict. Physical damage inflicted by chronic hunger. A lack of access to educational opportunities. These horrible situations are particularly tragic for a child.
The UN Declaration of Rights of the Child defines children’s right to protection, education, health care, shelter and good nutrition. Kids are humans with rights, not merely objects of care and charity.
Our initiatives provide hope and possibilities for a child to arrive at adulthood healthy, whole and healed. When children fail to reach their potential, year after year, we all face a darker future.
