Theirworld is a global children’s charity committed to giving the most vulnerable children and young people a brighter future in their world.
They lead a number of campaigns to create global change and bring better health and education to the most vulnerable children, and they run innovative projects to pilot new ideas and build life-changing opportunities. They want all children to have the chance to fulfil their potential.
They help as many children as possible, from vulnerable babies whose lives can be saved with medical advances, to children and young people who need greater support and encouragement.
From the laboratory to the school classroom and beyond, they work to identify what needs to be done to overcome the barriers that stop children getting the best start in life. They research, discover, innovate, and advocate for change.
They don’t shy away from the big challenges or tackling the big problems. They run pilot projects on the ground to prove that these changes work. And they open up the opportunity for new ideas, projects and funding to deliver real change to those most in need.
Theirworld’s work is led by principles of hope, change and challenge that they believe will lead to a brighter future for all children.
Hope signifies work with safe pregnancy and childbirth to give each child the best start in life.
Change is about giving children the chance to learn and bring about their own changes. Theirworld is committed to helping every child get a school education.
Challenge means Theirworld is prepared to take on the big problems that stop children from learning and reaching their full potential.
Promise is about ensuring that they see hope realised. That means turning goodwill into real action that delivers tangible results. It means putting pressure on world leaders and tracking their promises. And it means driving change through their research and pilot projects.
