Established as an independent UK charity in 1989 with support from UNICEF, Save the Children (Sweden) and others, ChildHope grew out of the recognition of the huge and growing but neglected problem of children living and working on the streets.
ChildHope began by responding to street children's immediate needs for food, clothing, shelter, healthcare and counselling. We currently work in countries throughout Africa, Asia and South America to transform the lives of extremely vulnerable children by reducing child abuse and exploitation, assisting children affected by HIV and AIDS, improving child justice systems and ensuring that children are involved in decisions and matters that affect their lives.
Over the last twenty years, we have been working with local organisations to develop long lasting solutions aimed at tackling the root causes of the poverty and the injustice faced by children around the world. As a result ChildHope has established a reputation for an innovative and highly effective approach to improving the lives of children.
