Poverty is messy.

We've been getting our hands dirty for 30 years.


We started by asking awkward questions

Like asking several well known charities to look after 1983's Ugandan conflict orphans, to be told we can't do that.

Or insisting that we should support 1990's institutionalised Romanian orphans and being told there's no point

And supporting disabled children in 2014's Uganda and Sri Lanka only to be told they're not worth it


We sponsor vulnerable children and partner with amazing grassroots projects in desperate communities.

Explore our website - find out why investing in vulnerable children changes everything - and join us as we go on asking awkward questions.

If you've heard enough already, go ahead and sponsor a child today.
