What are Fragile Contexts?
They are dangerous place - countries, cities, regions and communities where chronic instability, conflict, and violence leave large numbers of children caught in a trap of vulnerability and poverty. Children face particular danger where those with a responsibility to protect children and their families are unable or unwilling to do so.
These are the most dangerous places in the world to be a child. Children in fragile contexts live on a knife edge and are extremely vulnerable to violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect. These are the children our faith as a Christian organisation drives us to help.
Billions are affected
Today two billion people live in dangerous places deeply affected by fragility, conflict and violence.
Extreme vulnerability is increasing
By 2030, experts predict that people living in conflict-affected situations will reach more than 80% the world's extremely poor.
There is reason for hope
Despite rising violence and displacement in recent years, we are helping children in the world's most dangerous places to survive, recover and build a future.
