Safeguarding Childhood Together

Children are our future, and yet, not every child has equal opportunities as they grow up. The opportunity to be educated, safeguarded from illness and nourished.

Children in vulnerable communities are 3 times more likely to struggle with hunger5 times more likely to die at a young age and 14 times more likely to drop out of high school than their peers.

Racial, economic and social inequities for the next generation require action now more than ever before.
