Global Care is a registered international Christian children’s charity.
For 35 years we have pioneered initiatives supporting vulnerable children and young people in Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia and Central America
We rely on churches, schools, individuals and families, through fundraising and sponsorship, to help us develop new and existing projects.
We aim to support the poorest and most vulnerable children and young people, through education; vocational training, feeding and welfare care. For some we provide residential care.
Our experience shows this approach brings effective long-term solutions, leading to independence and self-sufficiency.
This brief animation provides a short summary of who we are, how we started, and what we do. You can also book a speaker from Global Care to tell your church or organisation about our work.
Our Christian ethos
We’re a Christian organisation working in communities with impoverished children, regardless of faith or ethnicity. We aim to treat everyone with respect, and work for justice for children in all situations.
Our practice is rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ. We believe every child is unique and precious in the eyes of God. We are called to express and share the love of God through Jesus Christ, dependent on God’s faithfulness, recognising that He will help us provide the resources for this work.
We support the most vulnerable children
We focus our efforts not just on children in poverty, but on those who face additional barriers to breaking out of poverty.
In our experience, this includes orphans, child-headed families, children with disabilities, children with severely, often terminally, ill parents, and children from marginalised social groups.
These children often lack secure adult protection and guidance, they face overwhelming challenges and have little presence or voice in the community.
We take a holistic view, addressing the entire wellbeing of vulnerable children.
Working with grassroots Christian groups, committed to reaching the most vulnerable children in their own communities, our projects seek to support :
Health and welfare, education and vocational training, child protection and mentoring, safety and shelter, freedom, choice and personal dignity.
We use child sponsorship to reduce inequality within communities and to provide a level playing field for the most vulnerable children
We place the most vulnerable children at the centre of our work – not singled out for privilege but prevented from slipping through the net. And, by balancing our efforts for individual children with community-wide measures, we enable the wider community to develop together.
We are registered with the Fundraising Regulator, adhering to their fundraising promise. You can read more about this promise, and the Fundraising Regulator, on their website.
