EarthChildren
WHO WE ARE

EarthChildren is a US charity that has been established to help displaced persons and persons of refugee backgrounds who are currently resident in camps or temporary settlements. We support daily living needs, provide education and facilitate the migration of such persons to settle in safe third countries. EarthChildren’s primary focus is on women and children, with many children being orphans.

Our current focus is on bringing healing and resources to the world's largest refugee camp, located in Bangladesh. We also work with those affected by war and political instability and are establishing links to bring food, water and medical aid to the children of Afghanistan and Yemen.

EarthChildren
OUR VISION

The EarthChildren vision is to recognise, validate, uplift and educate refugees in camps and settlements, focussing primarily on women and children, to break free from the chains of poverty and societal suppression that binds them, and to provide such supports that facilitate the creation of thriving women led hubs and inspiring childhood learning experiences. And, where possible, assist refugees and displaced persons to resettle and flourish in safe third countries.

Slide 11
Our Strategy
IN - COUNTRY

EarthChildren creates safe havens and healing sanctuaries inside of the world’s largest refugee camps through the building of women's safe houses, delivery of microfinancing programs and establishment of all-girl schools.
We also facilitate a child sponsorship program between sponsors and orphaned children to provide clean water, food, shelter, clothing and education. Just $50 per month can support the life of a child who lives inside of a refugee camp.

Through our work EarthChildren is proud to support 10 of 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Slide 11b
Our Strategy
IN - COUNTRY, BANGLADESH

EarthChildren is currently working inside the world’s largest refugee camp that is located in Cox Bazar Bangladesh. Our work is focused on Rohingya women and children. We are presently building two all girl primary schools (Years 1 to 7) and two safe houses for women that includes access to torture and trauma counselling and microfinancing opportunities.

We also facilitate a child sponsorship program for orphaned Rohingya children. The sponsorship program is designed to create a strong link between sponsor and child whereby the sponsor is able to participate in the life of the child and share their own life story – greatly contributing to physical and mental health healing through human connection. The sponsorship program provides food, clean water, shelter, clothes, and education opportunities both now and into adulthood.
