Since 2006 we have been working with trusted partners in Asia and the Pacific to deliver aid and opportunity to children in our four priority areas of Shelter, Nutrition, Education and Play. Our projects are delivered by locals who have proven their commitment and effectiveness in improving conditions for vulnerable children. As well as fundraising, we work with these partners on self-sufficiency, look at sustainable ways of working and help reduce reliance on international aid.
The majority of our current projects are in Burma and on the Thai border providing aid to children who have fled Burma. With the country opening up after the 2015 elections, a big need is rebuilding inside Burma – while also protecting and educating children from opportunistic exploitation and trafficking along the border. We provide nutritious food for orphaned, unaccompanied and abandoned children, we give the children an opportunity to express themselves creatively, and we support schools rebuilding themselves after the devastation of war among other projects.
