… like when we were told ‘they’re not worth it’ as we started supporting disabled children in Uganda and Sri Lanka (2012)
… or when we were told ‘there’s no point’ when we persisted in supporting institutionalised Romanian orphans (1990’s)
… or when larger charities said ‘we can’t do that’ in 1983 as we set out to help Ugandan conflict orphans ourselves
Why our approach has a lasting impact
We take a holistic view of a child’s life and address the entire wellbeing of vulnerable children including physical health; education and opportunities to learn; material wellbeing, child protection and mentoring; safety and a suitable home environment; freedom, choice and personal dignity.
And, by balancing our efforts for individual children with community-wide measures, we enable the wider community to develop together.
