GROWING CHILDREN'S MINDS
Children born into poverty find it very difficult to break free from deprivation as adults. And so, the cycle continues. At TSF, we aim to end generational poverty for good. We’re developing customised initiatives to support the healthy development of children suffering from poverty and hunger.
ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN
TSF is the nation’s leading charity working to keep everybody’s head above water and prevent child poverty. Backed by many supporters and donors, we have made a positive difference to hundreds of thousands of children and families living in poverty. We are committed to working through ending hunger with other charity organisations, to secure a comprehensive child poverty strategy, committing the government, for the first time, to legally binding targets for poverty eradication, as a result, children are lifted out of poverty.
PROGRAMS TO TACKLE POVERTY
Living as a child in poverty usually means living with a lack of healthcare, dental care, malnutrition, poor hygiene and substandard living conditions. In addition, the poorest children in Nigeria can access a decent education, reproductive health services and mental health treatments. As a result, a range of preventable medical conditions goes untreated for years.
