Children in Crisis provides education, protection, and better life opportunities for children who because of war, remoteness, and lack of government services, are missing out on quality schooling. At the heart of our work is the belief that education improves health and livelihood, unites communities and builds peace. Education is the key to overcoming poverty and exclusion, so we pay particular attention to children and women who face discrimination or disadvantage, for reasons of ethnicity, gender, disability, income or other factors.
We work in partnership with local organisations and communities to improve education, healthcare and child protection, and we build their capacity to mobilise local resources, plan, deliver change, and sustain that change. We choose to work where few others do, in some of the most challenging places, and in areas affected by conflict or political instability such as in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
