Asia

Across Asia, we’re keeping children safe from exploitation, and ensuring they have access to everything they need to have the best start in life.

More than half of the world's population lives in Asia, including 250 million people in urban slums. Child marriage, child labour and trafficking are amongst the biggest issues facing children living across the region. Natural disasters like typhoons and earthquakes are frequent, and have a huge impact on vulnerable children and their families.

Despite an economic boom, the income gap is widening and there are more people living in poverty than ever before. We’re building long-term relationships with communities to reduce poverty and help safeguard their futures. We’re also there when disaster strikes, providing life-saving emergency relief and helping families get back on their feet.
