What We Do

Programs & Activities


Basic education is essential for child cognitive and psychomotor development. By access to education, we do not only understand children's access to the first year of primary school, but also and mainly an inclusive child integrated development from his birth to his teenage. We consider that strategy, as a priority for our interventions in education.
Our organization is also committed to provide opportunities for vulnerable children in order to improve their access to an integrated quality education, develop their leadership and abilities to participate in their community actions.
Our projects in education target the following priority areas:
  • The development of early childhood
  • Improving access to education for all children
  • Rehabilitation and organization of school infrastructure
  • Promoting a quality school environment
  • Community mobilization to support schools
  • Capacity building of educational staff
  • Improving the quality and impact of education
  • Education to peacebuilding, citizenship, leadership and civic engagement
  • Education in Emergencies

Health & Nutrition

While all children in the world hold the right to have a healthy, balanced and sufficient diet to ensure their growth and development in society, many children are still excluded for various reasons. Similarly, access to public health services - especially for children - is very limited in many regions lagging behind. Many health issues considered at institutional level as well as at community level need to be addressed. In some regions in the world, critical pediatric services, pre/post-delivery facilities for women and their baby (Newborn center/room, etc.), and psychosocial care are almost not provided to all families, even when some small private health facilities or community health centers are available.

Consequently, our interventions are focused primarily to these areas, targeting both children and their mothers in a holistic way, i.e. the health and nutrition of children in their family, at school and in the community.

Water, Hygiene & Sanitation

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene play a vital role in the growth and well-being of every individual. In particular, children are more vulnerable to diseases, malnutrition and stunted growth in an environment with a scarcity of clean drinking water, unhealthy, with inadequate sewage disposal and improperly sanitized. Our goal in this area of intervention is focused on improving access to clean drinking water, as well as promotion and education on hygiene and basic sanitation for vulnerable children and their families.

The child, considering in all living environments (in the household, school, community) must know the mechanisms and basic usual gestures for cleanliness (e.g. Handwashing procedures), for environment protection (e.g. management and recycling of waste), for cleaning their living environment, etc.

Our priorities for intervention are oriented toward the education on standards and basic techniques in terms of access to safe water and promotion of hygiene and sanitation.

Protection & Emergencies

In situations of war, social or political conflicts, natural disasters, any abuse situation (eg. sexual exploitation, illegal work), children remain the most vulnerable. This vulnerability is increased in several countries, particularly in the poorest and emerging, where legislation on child protection and emergency measures are generally insufficient or almost unavailable.

The same situation is observed concerning children protection facilities, for which the inadequacy or non existence relies heavily on existing structural constraints at the government level (eg. Lack of public policies, insufficient budget allocation, etc. ).

Faced with the growing of threats, climate change effects and inadequation of ressources available compared to the needs, our priorities for intervention aim to find alternative strategies for the protection of children and their families, including the increased involvement of civil society and the community itself.

Gender Equality

Promoting equal opportunities for children of all origins, genders and social communities is a key objective of our strategy for gender equality development. Many children remain excluded from basic social services and discriminated on the basis of social, cultural and political stereotypes and prejudices.

We want to contribute actively in the reduction of sexo-specific inequalities and gaps between all genders, mainly to the benefit of girls and young women whose are the most discriminated about access to basic services. Our intervention includes the education of children, especially girls, about the promotion of citizenship, civic engagement and the culture of rights and participatory democracy in their community.
