About Us

ChildFund Alliance is a network of 12 child-focused development organizations working in 70 countries around the world. We work to end violence and exploitation against children and to overcome poverty and the underlying conditions that prevent children from achieving their full potential. We work in partnership with children and their communities to create lasting change, and the participation of children themselves is a key component of our approach.

Each member organization promotes child sponsorship as a comprehensive and meaningful approach to child development. ChildFund Alliance members create sustainable child-focused, community-based development programs in areas where children are impacted by war, natural disaster, poverty and global health issues such as HIV/AIDS.

Programs address education, health, nutrition, micro-enterprise and economic development, and emergency response and psychosocial interventions. ChildFund works in partnership with local communities. The participation of children themselves is a key component of our approach.

The ChildFund Alliance Secretariat oversees the day-to-day operations of the Alliance. It develops and works with members to implement Alliance-wide strategy, standards and policies. The Secretariat represents the Alliance at international forums such as the United Nations and the European Union.
