Going to the ends.
Where no one else goes.

Because love can make the greatest impact in the hardest places to be a child.

Dangerously soft-hearted. Just the right kind of dangerous.

We’re a global relief, development and advocacy organization. We partner with children, families and their communities to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.



Empowering people
out of poverty.

We bring real and lasting change to the lives
of the world’s most vulnerable children.
For good.

 

Love is what drives us. And there’s no limit to what love can do.

We’re a Christian charity. As in, we’re on a mission to follow Jesus' example of showing unconditional love to the poor and oppressed. Serving every child we can – of any faith, or none.

A history of taking action – even if it wasn't popular.

Fighting for what matters. For every child. For the last 65 years.
