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.

ChildHope began by responding to street children’s immediate needs for food, clothing, shelter, healthcare and counselling. Over the last twenty years, we have been working with local organisations to develop long lasting solutions aimed at tackling the root causes of the poverty and the injustice faced by children around the world. As a result ChildHope has established a reputation for our innovative and highly effective approach to improving the lives of children.


A partnership approach

ChildHope’s approach relies first and foremost on local partnerships.

Our partners are committed to child rights and understand the context of children’s lives. They share our values and deliver programmes that change the lives of children for the better.
