What difference will you make?

Our charity’s mission is to empower children who have been left feeling powerless by forces and circumstances outside of their control. We want to help every child, in every community we work with, to feel the safety, nurture and love they need in order to not only survive but to thrive. We work to protect and promote children’s rights and ensure that every child has the ability to feel seen and heard.

We provide children with the tools that they need to develop the unique talents and skills that we believe all children possess and should be able to carry into adulthood.

By supporting children in this way, we believe that they will develop into strong future leaders of their communities, generations who are able to succeed, inspire and care for one another, for many years to come.

The children have reached out to ask us to support their Sustainable Future Dream Campaigns.These campaigns have been driven by issues that are affecting children’s ability to live safe, empowered, sustainable lives.

What's in it for the volunteer?

This is the chance to make a huge impact on the lives of children fleeing conflict and crisis around the world; your involvement in this programme would be helping children in desperate situations to regain hope, to rebuild confidence, and to reimagine their future. You would join our international network of talented volunteers collaborating on this project to bring educational opportunities to crisis and conflict contexts.

Please be aware that this is an unpaid volunteer work.
