The impact of your support in 2021
Last year we reached and protected thousands of children in India, East Africa and the UK thanks to you.
The ongoing pandemic and its impact continue to affect us all, but with your support we’ve been able to keep working with those that need us most and make sure no child is left behind as we recover from the crisis.
Together we have been able to transform the lives of children, families and whole communities and with your help we’ll continue to do that for many years to come.
These are just some of the stories of positive change that you have made possible...
In India, during the last year alone we protected 6,508 children by identifying and supporting fragile families in 30 slum communities.
Our teams on the frontline were able to adapt and respond to the different situations. With your support our projects have expanded their focus to now working within slums alongside railways to help families stuck in a cycle of poverty and hunger, families of children like Satish.Read Satish's story >
In the UK last year we provided vital support and advice to 952 young people.
And now we’ve added a fourth project, this time in Birmingham, to keep even more young people safe across the rail network so we can protect and support them just like we did with Lily.Read Lily's story >
In East Africa last year we provided life skills and self-reliance support to 669 young people through our youth association programme.
This has been crucial in helping young people establish a bright future despite ongoing challenges, just like Shukrani has. Our teams enrolled Shukrani with our youth association, and helped her access life skills and basic education training as well as counselling and therapy.Read more of Shukrani's story >
With your help we made a huge impact in 2021 and we know you’ll be by our side as we keep reaching more children and changing more lives in 2022. Let’s keep more children safe together.
