Theirworld gives children, babies, and young adults the best chance of leading a happy and healthy life, full of potential. We lead global change by emphasising the need for children and young adults to be given a safe and good quality education, even in the most difficult circumstances. We also campaign and carry out research for the early years of children's life, from pre-natal care, right through their early development. Through research, pilot projects and campaigning, Theirworld is at the forefront of testing and shaping new ideas to help give children around the world the best possible start in life.
