Children of all ages, nationalities, religions and cultures suffer from violence, exploitation and abuse. Those in the world’s poorest communities are especially vulnerable because they’re less likely to receive crucial support from adults. Children facing these issues are unable to exercise their other important rights — to food, shelter, adequate health services, education — which further impairs their development and perpetuates the cycle of poverty. With our local partners, Children Global Initiative creates safe spaces where children feel nurtured and protected.
