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...

“I like HealthStart and I love working with it” Pauline (facilitator of HealthStart programme from Ogra foundation)
OverviewFor so many children, their greatest barrier to an education is their health. Child.org's largest programme tackles this problem comprehensively.
AimsHealthStart aims to provide a comprehensive school health programme - dealing with not just one problem, but as many as possible! We find ways for schools to provide clean water, soap, deworming, malaria nets, family planning, food, training in health and life skills - whatever's needed at that particular school. HealthStart works directly with schools, strengthening their internal systems and offering new ways for the school to tackle issues themselves. This way we create sustainable change that will have positive effects today and for generations to come
By giving women and girls valuable agricultural and life skills, we enable them to lift their families out of poverty for good.
