Families at risk
Families can find themselves at risk for many reasons. Violence, poverty, drug abuse and mental illness are some of the risk factors that impact children directly.

Children in Alternative Care
A caring and loving family is the best place for a child to develop into a healthy and responsible adult. For the target group Children in Alternative care, Childhood’s support is focused on preventing children from being placed in institutional care (except when absolutely necessary and in the best interest of the child).

Children who are Victims of Abuse
Sexual abuse and exploitation exist all over the world and have devastating consequences for a victimized child. Trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEK) is a growing problem as globalization keeps increasing.

Street children
Children live on the streets for many reasons, including difficult social-emotional situations at home, often cause by parental unemployment, poverty, alcoholism, violence and abuse.
