Children on the Edge is a 26 year old UK-based charity that helps marginalised and forgotten children, who are living on the edge of their societies. These are children without parental care, neglected or persecuted by their governments, ignored by international media and missed by large overseas agencies.
Working in partnership with local communities, Children on the Edge helps them to create safe, child friendly environments. They support children to realise their rights, and restore the ingredients of a full childhood by generating hope, life, colour and fun.
Children on the Edge currently support projects for working children in Bangladesh, children living in the slums of Uganda, displaced children in Kachin State - Burma, Syrian refugee children in Lebanon and Dalit children in India.
