We work in some of the world’s most dangerous places
Standing with Children in Fragile Contexts
By 2030, 80% of the world's poorest people will be living in places that are very dangerous for children. Some experts call these dangerous places "fragile contexts" - where chronic instability, conflict, and violence leave large numbers of children caught in a trap of extreme vulnerability coupled with crippling poverty. Those with a responsibility to protect children and their families are unable or unwilling to do so in these places.
Children in fragile contexts live on a knife edge and are extremely vulnerable to violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect. These are the children that our faith as a Christian organisation, and our principles as a humanitarian and development organisation compel us to stand with.

Real People. Real Stories. Dangerous Places.
Millions of children live in dangerous places. The issues they face are complex.
We have designed a special portal where you can learn more about these realities, ask questions and participate in solutions.
