Every child needs someone who’s on their side – someone who cares about what happens to them and works to ensure their highest good. ChildFund is a global community of people who care about children and take action to help them live at their fullest potential at every stage of their lives.

We are people who believe that we all have a lot more in common than we think. That every child – like every person – is of equal worth and value, indispensable. And that each of us has a part to do.

We are people who know that we can’t afford to lose a single child to hunger, violence, disease or neglect. And that when children grow up healthy, educated and safe, everyone wins.
