Childhood acts as a liaison between donors and community-based organizations and is currently supporting over 100 projects in 17 countries.
We identify, review and support existing projects and new initiatives and efforts that are aligned with Childhood's mission; to defend the rights of children and to promote better living conditions for vulnerable and exploited children at risk all over the world.
Why do we fund projects instead of running our own?
The answer is simple. Rather than employing a small team in one place, we engage many teams from across the world that can adjust models to work well in their environment. This way, everyone can do something and together we can create much greater change.
We believe that everyone should do what they do best. That is why we work as a broker between the community-based organizations in the field, and the funders that we solicit donations from. We ensure quality of results and encourage new methods that will create efficient models. This way, we help more children than we could if we ran our own projects.
How we work
We review and support existing projects according to set guidelines and evaluate each project to ensure that they fulfill required quality and results. Childhood also assists in developing Best Practices models and replication efforts in order to promote well-managed partnerships, as well as spreading successful programs helping children.
