For over two years, Syrian families living in Azraq refugee camp in...

Play is at the heart of every happy childhood. It gives children the chance to find out about the world, stay healthy and cope with stress. Play is so important, it’s now...

We believe that a quality education will help children create better future opportunities for themselves and their families.

Through our partnership with Going to School, we will reach 200,000 children in 500 schools in Bihar, India, giving them the skills they need to run their own businesses or get better jobs.

This beautiful film gives you a glimpse of what this work is all about!
