Chance for Childhood is an award-winning charity working in Africa to support the most vulnerable children, invisible from society, such as street children, disabled children, children affected by conflict and children in conflict with the law. Read more about who we help.
A world where no child is forgotten.
We work with and strengthen the capacity of African visionary community leaders and governments to implement locally-relevant yet far-reaching projects that create lasting change within the Justice, Education and Social Protection sectors. This enables us to focus on ‘hard to reach’ children, both in terms of their complex needs (e.g. street children with learning difficulties) and location (e.g. urban violent slums or remote rural areas).
Our strong ethos of partnership and collaboration continues to be the driver of achieving impact at scale. Together with our partners, we make ideas and impact both sustainable and scalable to protect, educate and empower even more of the world’s most disadvantaged children.
We believe that the only way to break the vicious cycle of poverty and exclusion is through an approach tailored to the unique needs and situation of each child. We tackle the root causes of exclusion and vulnerability and work with the child, their family and the wider community to create lasting change.
To maximise our impact and make effective use of our resources, we focus our work on the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda – five countries facing extreme poverty, inequality, conflict and forced displacement.
