We believe in a brighter future, created for, and by, children.

At World Villages for Children, we know that education is key to ending poverty and achieving sustainable, positive change. We support education programmes for some of the most deprived boys and girls across the world. We provide them with a safe, secure and loving environment, where both their physical and emotional needs are met.

Each child that we help, in turn supports their families and communities, and with the help of our corporate partners we’re helping to shape the futures of their countries, by showing what is possible when you believe and invest in children.
