WHAT IS RAW HOPE?

Raw Hope works in the world’s most volatile regions like Afghanistan, South Sudan, Syria and Honduras, where conflict, economic instability and human rights violations can make every day feel like a living hell. But survival isn’t just about meeting the immediate needs of the millions of children and their families who call these places home.

Your gift to Raw Hope will enable us to create safe spaces for children to play, learn about their rights and continue their education. Build up resilience through programs and services for the whole community. Nurture and develop skills so parents can support their families through sustainable livelihoods.

Because life on the margins is no place for any child.

WHAT YOUR SUPPORT PROVIDES

Child Protection

We advocate for child rights and encourage children to speak up against abuse and injustice. By educating families about child rights they are better equipped to keep their children safe. In 2019, 126,189 people learned about child rights and protection issues.

Education

Access to education, classroom repairs, school supplies and training for teachers and parents provide children with opportunities for a better future. In 2019, 34,711 parents learned about the importance of education and how to support their child’s learning.*

Food & Nutrition

Nutritious food means creating sustainable food sources through agricultural programs and nutritional trainings, to ensure that children are well-nourished and healthy. In 2019, 45,115 malnourished children were enrolled in nutritional programs and monitored to ensure healthy growth.*

Healthcare

Good health is the foundation of a child’s life. Access to essential services, vaccinations, medical clinics and training in disease prevention provide better health for children and their communities. In 2019, 36,628 people benefited from medical consultations and treatment in health facilities.*

Safe Water

Access to safe water through well-drilling, pumps and training in hygiene and sanitation decreases child mortality and frees up time for education, instead of water collection. Thanks to improved water sources, 68,125 people now have safe water for drinking and cooking.*
