Making a difference with children

  • It is estimated that 153 million children worldwide, ranging from infants to teenagers, have lost one or both parents (UNICEF)

  • Around the world, our volunteers worked with and supported over 3,000 children last year

  • “Volunteers are very valuable since they bring with them a variety of skills and experience that can be shared with the local teams of workers to enhance the lives of the children we are working with. The centres are severely underfunded and understaffed and so every hour that our volunteers spend at these places enhances and enriches the lives of the local children.” Project, Nepal
