We believe every child has the right to a safe and secure childhood

Childhope launches steps to help end child labour in Bangladesh.

Why ChildHope exists 

ChildHope believes that children should enjoy a safe and secure childhood, but for those growing up in the toughest circumstances, these rights are denied. Born into extreme poverty and violence, they have no protection. Our works supports children who are considered the hardest to reach. These children may live and work on the street, be at risk of trafficking or child marriage, victims of abuse or sexual exploitation, working on rubbish dumps or in contact with the law. Children with disabilities are more likely to be stigmatised, abused, exploited or neglected.

We are ambitious. Our current strategy commits to supporting 250,000 of these hardest to reach children by 2020.

Helping Ethiopia’s Poorest Girls get an Education

Although Ethiopia has made much progress in ensuring all children get an education, girls and disabled children still face huge barriers, particularly those in the very remote areas. Girls in particular face considerable barriers to achieving their potential. Many still have very poor attendance at primary school, so they perform badly in their exams and are unable to progress to secondary school. At secondary level, the language of teaching switches to English which is problematic as many children do not speak the language and the teachers themselves have poor English.

However, many more are still with their families.
