What we do

With a fresh approach, we can build a better world.

We do community-led development. Child.org work closely with people to ensure our work creates lasting change and helps them to lift their whole family and community out of poverty. 

We learn. Every programme that we design at Child.org has two aims. It should improve the lives of children for the long term. It should also teach us how to work better. We want to one day become a research and development hub for the sector - so we're all about collecting evidence and testing ideas.

We do good business. To fund our work, Child.org create innovative social enterprise products that make people happy. We want to make the world better with everything we do. Check them out and see if there's something for you!

Here are some examples of projects our teams are working on right now...

"The best thing about being a concierge was being able to represent the charity and getting people talking about it. Also being able to raise such a huge amount of money in such a short time and telling people how much their donation will help in allowing children to go to school!"Kate Pryer, Charity Concierge at Latitude 2015
OverviewBringing a prestigious concierge service to the festival scene; Charity Concierges offer festival goers a little guilt free luxury
AimsThis innovative fundraising social enterprise makes festivals more fun for the customer, offers volunteers an amazing weekend working at some of the best festivals in the UK and raises thousands to help give children the opportunity they deserve. Dedicated Child.org volunteers are making up a team of the finest concierge to transform your festival experience; the muddy fields of England are gaining some high class service.

"The fact that there are children in the world that need help is not enough reason for Child.org to exist."The Master Plan
OverviewWe need a good reason to exist. There are always better ways to tackle problems that children face - and we’re dedicating ourselves to finding them.
AimsThere are lots of great organisations who make the world better for children. So we need to do something different, something that adds value. What the world actually needs is an organisation that will find the best ways to make the world better for children. And then share that knowledge with everyone. It won’t be easy, but we’re becoming that organisation. That’s what our Master Plan is all about.
