Going to the ends.
Where no one else goes.

Because Jesus is alive in the hardest places to be a child.

Going to the ends.

Because Jesus is alive in the hardest places to be a child.

Dangerously soft-hearted.
But just the right kind of dangerous.

That's because we're a global Christian humanitarian organization. We partner with children, families, and their communities to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.

Empowering people out of poverty.

For real. For good.
For the past 65 years.

Jesus' love at the center. Always.

We're Christian - as in we follow Jesus' example to show unconditional love to the poor and oppressed. Serving every child we can - of any faith or none.

Believing that no child is lost.

No situation is hopeless.
Because our hope is in Jesus.
