Together we can protect vulnerable children

With the support of our fellow Canadians, we focus on helping the most vulnerable children overcome poverty and experience fullness of life. We help children of all backgrounds, even in the most dangerous places, inspired by our Christian faith. Together we can protect children today, and empower them for tomorrow.

WE ARE LOVING

Love is what drives everything we do. We believe every child matters, and we work together with people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender to make the world a better place for children.

COURAGEOUS

We go boldly into places where others aren’t to help children who need it the most. We speak out against poverty and injustice – and help communities raise their own voices too.

IMPACTFUL

We’re making lasting change by leading with vision, wisdom and determined action to show the possibility of a better world. Through our work, every 60 seconds a family gets water, a hungry child is fed, and a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.
