  • Mission statement

    Child Action creates educational opportunities for children living within India’s most disadvantaged street and slum communities.

    Together with our local partners, we support the development of young people living in extreme poverty by providing them with access to both informal and mainstream education, as well as their right to a childhood through play.

    Child Action also believes in the power of educating the younger generations here in the UK on the issues of global poverty, and supports children in learning how to take responsibility by fundraising for their less fortunate peers.

    Child Action’s main focus is to enable the best possible start in life, so that children and young adults may remain in school and gain relevant vocational training for future employment.
