Family for Every Child New Zealand
Family for Every Child (Family) is a global alliance of national civil society organisations (members) working together to improve the life of vulnerable children worldwide. We currently have 34 member organisations in 31 countries around the world, and aim to grow this to 40-50 members by 2020.
Across the world, millions of boys and girls are exposed to the risk of exploitation, trafficking, child labour, early marriage and other forms of physical, sexual and emotional abuse. At Family, we believe that, to reach their full potential, every child has the right to grow up in a safe family environment.
What makes our alliance unique is that it brings together grassroots organisations from around the world that have a deep understanding of the local challenges and needs of children and families in their communities, in their countries, in their culture. Together, we have a stronger international, regional and national voice to advocate for change for the children in their countries, we learn from each other, we cooperate in projects together and with external partners, and we carry out context-based research that helps us advance our cause for children.
Family for Every Child is a UK registered charity. Family for Every Child New Zealand is a charitable trust which was registered in NZ in 2017 with the main purpose of establishing a new fundraising programme. To date, we have acquired nearly 3000 new supporters in NZ who generously support us with a financial donation every month. By the end of 2020 we hope to have a supporter base of 10,000+ and a profile in NZ which will allow us to achieve greater change for children.
