Together for children

Millions of children across the world live without the protection of a caring family. This makes them vulnerable to exploitation, trafficking, child labour or early marriage, and other forms of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, often within their own home. These local issues form a global crisis.

We are pioneering a new approach to solve this crisis by bringing together practices and research from local and national contexts to our global alliance. We then adapt and share these ideas to create a range of solutions to the crisis of children living without families.
