ChildHope: An overview
ChildHope was established in 1989 in order to address the problem of vulnerable children having to live and work on the streets of Africa, Asia and South America.
ChildHope projects aim to tackle a range of issues which effect children, such as poverty, lack of education, homelessness, child prostitution, child labour and the destructive impact of HIV/AIDS.
We seek to promote the rights of children and reduce child abuse and exploitation.
Tackling the underlying causes of poverty and maltreatment is an important aspect of ChildHope’s work
ChildHope is currently working with local NGOs in India, Bangladesh, Kenya, The Gambia, Tanzania, Peru, Ethiopia, Brazil, Sierra Leone, South Africa and Uganda.
ChildHope receives grants from institutional donors including Comic Relief, Big Lottery and DFID as well as trusts, foundations, corporations and many generous individuals.
In 2010 our income was £1,770,332 and our expenditure was £1,768,722.
By keeping administrative and operational costs to a minimum, ChildHope are able to ensure that 89% of our expenditure goes towards support for and grants to projects supporting children in Africa, Asia and South America.
