About Us

​A world free from child poverty

Our aim is a world free from child poverty, where no child suffers from preventable diseases or hunger, where no child is exploited or harmed, where every child feels cared for, here every child is strong and healthy in body and mind, educated and confident. 

ChildFund is an international development organisation that works together in partnership with children, their families and communities. The protection of children is a priority in all our work, and ChildFund has its own safeguarding policy which is rigorously enforced.

With your support we help create long-term positive change that benefits children; promotes children’s rights and voices, and helps children break free from poverty.

“If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” African Proverb
