We provide people, services and opportunities so each year 1,100 children in care in Ukraine and 200 children in Malawi can improve their wellbeing, develop their potential and have the opportunity to succeed at life.
There are more than 105,000 children raised in 751 care institutions in Ukraine. These children experience negative impacts to their physical and mental development and a high level of social marginalization and exclusion. Only 10% of children who have been raised in care will successfully integrate into society.
Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, and the endemic spread of AIDS has left many children orphaned and exposed to extreme poverty. Only 20% of children complete lower secondary school.
We help better the opportunities for vulnerable children in both countries, and with the right social development, preparation and enough support, they can beat the odds.
