• What we do

    ChildHope | International children's charity supporting street and working children

    Millions of children face poverty and violence in their everyday lives. We believe all children deserve a life free from injustice and abuse.

    Working with local partners in Africa, Asia and South America, ChildHope listens to children and actively involves them in finding solutions to transform their futures.To create long-lasting change, solutions needs to come from the ground up – from the children themselves, communities and organisations. In this way, we ensure that the projects are relevant and realistic.
  • 25 years of ChildHope

    Until the 1980’s, street children’s voices went unheard and their problems ignored. In response, an international group of people who cared deeply about the plight of these children came together and ChildHope was born, becoming a registered charity in 1989. Initially responding to street children’s immediate needs for food, clothing, and shelter, healthcare and counselling, ChildHope has evolved over the years.

    We have worked in a total of 26 countries, including The Philippines, Thailand, Gaza, Bulgaria and Ukraine to name just a few. We now work with like-minded local grassroots organisations in Africa, Asia and South America, challenging the violence and injustices that children face. We believe it is important to strengthen communities in order to alleviate the conditions that lead to children being on the streets in the first place and to involve children in making decisions about making positive changes. We continually look for new and innovative ways to empower street and working children and help them to get off the streets and into quality education, giving them more freedom to shape their own futures.

  • Our Impact

    Established in 1989, ChildHope has pioneered an approach that goes beyond quick fixes. Over the years, our work has helped make a difference to the lives of hundreds of thousands of children ensuring that they can build a life away from the dangers of the streets.

    ChildHope is currently supporting 132,871 children and young people to make long term improvements to their lives. Our programmes reach a further 52,277 adults. This community-based work is vital in raising awareness of the need to better protect and support children, and developing child protection mechanisms over the long term.
