Every child has the right to a safe and secure childhood, but for many these rights are denied. Born into extreme poverty and violence, they have no-one to protect them. ChildHope believes that no child should face these challenges alone.

We believe every child has potential and that there is hope in even the most desperate situation. There are strengths within children, their families, friendships and communities. Policies and systems can be changed, to protect children and enable them to thrive.

Every child is different and each will find a unique path towards a better future. By strengthening the net of support around the child we aim to ensure that no child makes this journey alone.

Our History

ChildHope was established as an independent UK charity in 1989. With support from UNICEF, Save the Children (Sweden) and others, ChildHope grew out of the recognition of the huge and growing but neglected problem of children living and working on the streets of Africa, Asia and South America.
