Standing with Children in Fragile Contexts

By 2030, 80% of the world’s poorest people will be living in places that are very dangerous for children. Some experts call these dangerous places “fragile contexts” – where chronic instability, conflict, and violence leave large numbers of children caught in a trap of extreme vulnerability coupled with crippling poverty. Those with a responsibility to protect children and their families are unable or unwilling to do so in these places.

Children in fragile contexts live on a knife edge and are extremely vulnerable to violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect. These are the children that our principles as a humanitarian and development organisation compel us to stand with.

Join our movement to create a happy future for children around the world.
