It starts with one child…

Around the world, children are living with trauma and disease. The impact on their life chances can be devastating. The individual child is where we start.

We train and empower people who can best fill the critical gaps in care for those children – mothers, peers who have experienced the same challenges, and community health workers. 

We rigorously monitor results so the model can scale up and be integrated into government.

From that first child, our projects have transformed the lives of 122,000 children and been a catalyst for change for a further 1,260,000 people.  

Join our movement for change.
