Who we are
We are a bunch of people dedicated to one thing and one thing only: building a world where every child has an equal opportunity.
For example: We’re developing ways to keep children at school and learning to their full potential. To do this, in each community, we find the unique barriers that are in the children’s way and remove them. Sometimes that means giving children de-worming tablets. Sometimes it means building them a school kitchen or plumbing in fresh water. Sometimes it means providing malaria preventions. Whatever it is, we examine the evidence and we do what works.
Imagine you’re playing Scrabble, staring at your tiles. And you’re doing well. You have a five letter word. But you keep reshuffling the letters. You just know that there’s a bigger and better way to use them. There’s a longer word there, you can feel it in your kneecaps. And you feel like you’re clever enough to find it.
You tip all the letters face down onto the table, shuffle them, pick them up again. You shut your eyes, rub them, open them and look at the rack with fresh eyes. Suddenly you see it; that 50-point 7-letter word. The game changer. And you can’t wait to show the friends you’re playing with because they are going to love it. And it’s going to open up more places for them to play their own words.
That flash of inspiration you get from looking at things differently is what Child.org is.
It’s asking the question in a slightly different way. It is the surprising lightbulb moment that you always suspected was there but that perhaps others weren’t looking for. It’s the person who turns up late and suggests the obvious answer to the issue everyone else has been debating for hours.
Creativity comes from looking at things with positivity. For Child.org, every obstacle is always an opportunity to find an exciting new approach.
Child.org drinks are changing!
Posted on 07th Oct 2021
Introducing Child.org presents: informal and informative discussions sharing the latest insight from our programmes in Kenya, plus an in-dpeth look at some of the ground-breaking activities that fund this work.
From November, we’re changing our informal drinks meetups to bring you a series of discussions about our work championing maternal and child health in Kenya, and the activities we run to support this work. Join the team to hear the latest on our mission to spark progress in global child health - from updates and insights in our programmes, to the latest from Ride Africa and Charity Concierge. Each session will focus on a specific theme, with an informal discussion followed by a Q&A and a chance for supporters old and new to catch up with the Child.org team.
Our first event will be in early November (date and time TBC) with Programme Manager Cherio discussing our newest project focusing on neonatal health and why that's a priority for us in Kenya. A full schedule of events will be shared soon. Events will be hosted on Google Meets and we will share the link to join ahead of time on the website and on our social media (@child.org). If you have any questions, get in touch with us at email@example.com.
We are a wonderful, supportive family of doctors, tech geeks, writers, students, teachers, concierges, researchers, festival goers, charity workers, artists, accountants, school children, social workers, entrepreneurs...the list is endless and continues to grow as more and more incredible people join us on our mission. Put some faces to names:
Child.org Core make Child.org happen. These are the smart supporters who regularly contribute to fund everything that Child.org does (not just the sexy bits) and keep in contact with us to find out what we are up to and consult on new ideas.
