Our work focuses on bringing about lasting change to social structures. In addition to helping children, we also seek to impact their environment; for example with programmes designed to increase family incomes and to help create self-help groups.
However, we primarily help sexually abused children so they can come to terms with their traumatic experiences. Our rehabilitation programmes help them resume a normal life. Involving the entire family is crucial in this process.
By fostering community development and above all helping families to increase their income, we actively combat exploitative child labour in the project regions. Families escape from extreme poverty and children can return to school. Education is an important part of many additional projects such as our work with children from urban slums and with girls and boys with disabilities. Furthermore, we offer vocational training programmes for school dropouts.
