What We Do

Our Intervention Areas


Education is the base of development of a nation, it is the foundation for human capacity development.

Health and Nutrition

Child health & nutrition has direct consequences on the future, as such today’s feeding or otherwise will have a striking impact on health throughout adolescence and adulthood

Child Rights & Advocacy

We are working with several partner organisations, assessing the need for child rights advocacy, enforcement and domestication of so many national and international conventions of child-rights

Give help where it's needed most

There is an estimated 8.6 million vulnerable children that encounter challenges every day in Nigeria, and apart from sharing their communities' struggles over limited resources like water, food and clothes, they are easily trafficked, prone to sexual assault, less likely to attend schools, stigmatised and excluded. They therefore deserve special care, but presently no adequate care system and social services are available for them.

Causes that can't wait

Schools for Rural Children

Education is the right of every Nigerian child. Nigeria has the highest number of out-of-school children in the world, estimated at about 10.5 million and growing

Let's Fight Hunger

Poor nutrition causes 50% of the death in children under the age of five. It is estimated that every 15 seconds, a child dies of hunger and malnutrition.

Help North-east Villages Rebuild and Recover

Over 370 thousand children in North-eastern Nigeria, affected by the activities of Boko Haram, need saving. Homes need rebuilding and livelihoods need recovery.
