The global situation
Despite the noteworthy progress that has been made in recent years in improving child health, reducing child mortality and providing access to formal education, children around the world still face substantial threats on a daily basis.
In addition to the latest resurgence of Covid-19 and the effects of climate change that directly endanger children’s lives, we encounter many other problems among children in need:
- One in four children suffers from hunger
- One in three children lives in a conflict zone
- Over 260 million children and young people have no access to education
All these factors and challenges rob children everywhere of the chance for a better, self-determined future.
Support these children today so that they can go to school and be protected, against all the odds. We are convinced that an investment in the education and protection of children is an investment in a better future for children in need.
