ChildFund Programs

ChildFund connects children with the people and resources they need to grow up healthy, educated, skilled and, most importantly, safe. Our programs are comprehensive, creating conditions where children can thrive throughout three life stages -- ages 0-5, 6-14 and 15-24 – with interventions tailored to meet children's needs as they evolve from infancy through young adulthood. ChildFund’s approach places a special emphasis on protecting children from violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect, because these can shatter a child’s positive development in a second.
Our hyper-localized approach supports local partner organizations to implement programs that strengthen families and communities to address the root causes of poverty and protect their children’s rights. Children’s voices and experiences are at the center of our work. When children and youth are able to claim their rights, they become agents of change in their own lives and mobilize their peers to action. We
actively engage children and youth in defining both problems and solutions.
In addition, a systems approach guides our initiatives across the multiple contexts that affect children: Our approach sees the child existing inside a series of different rings of potential support and risk, from home to school to the larger community and beyond. In our work, we are conscious of how these different layers affect a child’s life and how they interact with each other, whether strengthening a system of support or fragmenting it. This understanding helps us direct our work and engage with children, families and communities to prevent violence, strengthen institutions and advocate for broader reform and social change with high-level government actors and decision-makers.
ChildFund works in 24 countries, reaching 13.6 million children and family members.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

With primary funding from sponsors, as well as support from government, corporate and individual donors, we work long-term in communities to help them transform themselves into places where children have what they need to live at their potential throughout their lives: access to health care, nutrition, learning opportunities, safety and caregivers equipped to ensure all these elements are in place. Our approach is grounded in the idea that if any of these pieces is missing, especially early in a child’s life, his or her development is at risk.

ChildFund bases its programs on evidence of what works to promote development at each stage of a child’s life:
-- For infants and young children ages 0 to 5, programs focus on ensuring improved nutrition, health, safety and early learning experiences.
-- Programs for children and young adolescents ages 6 to 14, focus on increased learning, health, positive relationships with peers and adults, and skills for active participation in family, school and community life.
-- Our programs for youth ages 15 to 24, focus on improved employment, sexual and reproductive health and civic engagement and leadership.
