We exist to ensure that every child in Africa can thrive from their early years through to adulthood.
We don’t work alone. Together with partners, supporters, children and their communities, we protect, educate and create lasting change for every child threatened by violence, neglect and conflict.
By 2025 we will reach 150,000 children with critical support, you can read more about our 2025 strategy here and read on to find out more about our strategic pillars of Safe Spaces and Inclusive Education below
Ensuring Inclusive Education is available to every child means casting our net far wider than just the classroom. Together with local partners we create lasting change for children experiencing disabilities.
In schools, our Inclusive Early Childhood Education programme helps teachers identify developmental delays and disabilities in children much earlier, so they can get any additional support they might need. We provide teachers with innovative solutions to help them include children with special educational needs in quality education alongside their peers.
In communities, our low-cost Learning Support Assistant solution helps improve enrolment, retention and learning outcomes for children. And our home-based early education training helps parents to give their children the best start, making sure they can still access education when getting to school isn’t possible – and preparing them to succeed in the classroom.
Where we work
Chance for Childhood works from two locally-led operational hubs in East and West Africa respectively. These operational centres support a portfolio of partners across five countries: DRC, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda. During the next four years, Chance for Childhood will look to deliver the biggest impact, based around our East and West hubs. We will grow two pools of regional advisors and take opportunities to support our partner and allies across both regions wherever we can add value without compromising our existing commitments.
