Our Objective

Strategy 2030
Our strategy for the next decade is to ensure the best care of children, innovate, and unite more partners so that no child grows up alone.

Almost 70 years of experience supporting children without parental care, and those at risk of losing it, have given us a deep understanding of how to care for children who need someone and how to help prevent the breakdown of parental care. We do this through innovative and effective partnerships with donors, communities, governments and other organisations.

Our Strategy 2030 helps us respond to the changing needs in the communities where we work, putting the most disadvantaged children at the centre of all our actions.

Our strategy directly relates and contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals in key areas such as poverty, inequality, education, health, social and child protection, and decent work.
