Why run for Railway Children?

Over the last 22 years we have helped over 300,000 vulnerable children in East Africa, India and the UK. But we’re only just getting started.

We need you to join our fight for children who have nowhere to go and no-one to turn to. With your help we can give more children a future and keep them safe - for good.
