You can’t learn and play when you’re at work all day.
It’s hard to participate at school when there’s no accommodation for your disability.
It’s hard to follow your dreams when you’re forced to marry at 15.
Childhood is precious and fleeting. But children living in vulnerable communities often carry heavy burdens that rob them of the chance to simply be a child. Too often, these children miss out on an education, time to play with friends, and the care they need to grow up happy and healthy. In some places, the combination of poverty and traditional cultural practice means that 40 percent of girls are married before their 18th birthday, many much younger.
And when this happens, whole communities are impacted when a generation misses out on the opportunity to flourish.
Poverty takes opportunities away, but your contribution helps communities protect childhoods. Do you want to change the story for vulnerable children?
The Vulnerable Children Fund exists to improve the quality of life for vulnerable children living in communities experiencing poverty. The fund supports projects that positively impact children, so that they can experience the fullness of life God intends.
