Every child deserves the opportunity to dream big – and to chase those dreams.
That's why we're teaming up with families all over the globe to help children succeed. Sometimes that means working with families to improve their hygiene and health. Other times it means helping parents make nutritious meals for their little ones. Or helping new moms understand the benefits of breastfeeding.
Enabling children to get an education is so important. We work with parents to enroll their children in school. We reach out to teachers to make sure they have the resources to engage students. And we team up with schools to improve infrastructure like bathrooms and classrooms.
When children are on the move, their health and safety are still top priorities. That's why we provide safe places for refugee children to live and heal. We also focus on helping them return to the classroom and continue learning.
No matter the circumstance, we're committed to protecting and supporting children worldwide.
