We believe the Church is uniquely placed to influence change on a local basis, and that local congregations understand their communities, their children and the most important local issues far better than we do. So we work alongside churches and grass-roots Christian organisations, who are deeply embedded in their communities and making a difference to marginalised children. We resource them, train them, help them draw up strategic plans and walk with them through the joys and challenges of serving children. And of course, we're always ready to learn as we go.

We currently have project partners in DR Congo, Rwanda and Zambia. We are also part of the Stop Child Witch Accusations coalition; a group of organisations committed to ending witchcraft accusations against children. Alongside these partnerships, we have created Transformation Resources to enable church and community leaders to address issues affecting local children. We see these resources as a project in themselves.

We and our partners are currently focusing on serving children affected by:

  • disability;
  • HIV;
  • homelessness;
  • abuse of all kinds, and especially arising from accusations of witchcraft.
