As a child protection organisation working to prevent trafficking and exploitation of girls, safety is our number one value. We adhere to best practices in child protection. We work to strengthen the families and communities we partner with so that they can prioritise the safety of their children. When we are faced with a difficult case and must decide what is best for the child, we consider their safety first and foremost. As a team, we operate under the rule that we must keep ourselves and each other safe in order to ensure the safety of the girls and families we support. https://www.freetoshine.org/

Children Change Colombia
Defending the rights of children at risk in Colombia
We are the largest UK charity working exclusively in Colombia. We work with children and their families to challenge poverty, inequality, discrimination and violence.
Despite a growing economy and a recent peace deal with the country's largest guerilla group, millions of Colombian children still face poverty, violence and exclusion from the opportunities presented by a changing society. So whether they are threatened by forced displacement, sexual exploitation or recruitment into armed groups, whether denied education, a loving family or a place to play, we work to ensure that every child can claim their right to a safe and happy childhood and a fulfilling future. We believe that, with a knowledge of their rights and the confidence to assert them, children can transform their own lives, their communities and Colombia itself. https://www.childrenchangecolombia.org/
New Ways is a charity dedicated to transforming the lives of some of the world's poorest people.
The charity was founded in 1994 by MCSPA, with the aim of supporting development work in Africa, particularly basic nutrition, healthcare, agriculture, water infrastructure and education.In the UK we organise and support fundraising activities. Raise funds through applications to grant making bodies. Build relationships with, and understanding of, the communities with whom we work.
We make great efforts to keep our administration costs low (our aim is to keep these below 5%). As all of these costs are covered by existing subscriptions and specific donations from benefactors, all of the money raised through our fundraising events or through other donations goes directly to project work. The beneficiaries of the projects that we support come from a wide range of faiths and backgrounds and in this we are completely non-denominational. Most of our funding goes to our main overseas partner organisation the Missionary Community of St Paul the Apostle (MCSPA) a Catholic community based in northern Kenya - this does not affect our aim to help reduce poverty regardless of the race, religion or politics of those in need. http://www.newways.org.uk/

MICROLOAN FOUNDATION AUSTRALIA
736 million people around the world live in poverty
Survival is doubly difficult for women
They struggle to feed their families, provide accommodation, send their children to school or afford even the most basic elements of healthcare. One in 13 of their children will die before the age of five. Their lives are a daily battle for survival. One which all too often they lose.
Our vision is a world where all those living in poverty have the opportunity to build better lives for themselves and their families.
Our mission is to provide the poorest women in sub-Saharan Africa with the tools and skills to enable them to work their own way out of poverty.
By providing them with the skills and tools to start small businesses we support them to become self-sufficient for their daily needs. Over time the money they generate from their own effort helps to ensure food security, improve housing, access to healthcare, and an education for their children. We encourage them to make savings. This is as insurance against future crop failure, family illness and other unpredictable situations. Savings give them confidence in their ability to weather whatever life throws at them. With up to 99% of our loans being repaid in full, we can use the money again and again to help more and more women. However, there are millions more families who need support. https://www.microloanfoundation.org.uk/
Trailblazer Foundation was founded in 2004. The co-founders chose the name because they were blazing a new trail in rural community development, by being the first non-government organization to work in the rural villages of Cambodia's Siem Reap province.. To improve health, food security, education, and economic development in rural Cambodia in ways that are self-sustaining by the individuals and communities we serve.
Our four program areas—health, food security, education, and economic development—represent a well-rounded strategy for not just giving our partner communities a proverbial fish, but helping them learn how to live in ways that are self-sustaining. Trailblazer Foundation chooses our projects based on an annual local government assessment of village needs. We are honored to be one of only a handful of NGOs invited to this annual meeting. Through this bottom-up process, the villages themselves identify their needs. Their requests, in turn, direct our annual activities, which are “developing ripples of sustainability through community water projects." https://thetrailblazerfoundation.org/
