Who we are

We are a children’s charity committed to ending the global education crisis. Our mission is to ensure that every child has the best start in life, a safe place to learn, and skills for the future.  

We achieve our mission by combining the power of campaigning, policy, and innovative projects, to create change from the top-down and bottom-up. We anticipate, target, and solve the complex barriers keeping children and young people from education and opportunity.
