TACKLING CHILD POVERTY

WHY WE CAMPAIGN

By harnessing the power of people - we can work towards a better world. Together, we can rewrite the rules. Because every child’s future is worth fighting for. Children face barriers that aren't just bad luck, they're a design of a system. Now we're stepping up the fight for hope and happiness at a time when it's under threat like never before. Our aim is built around the hopes of young people, to achieve long-lasting change for this generation and the ones to come.

EVERY YOUNG PERSON DESERVES A GOOD CHILDHOOD

FREE A CHILD FROM POVERTY

A childhood spent in poverty is a terrible start to life. Not only does it restrict life opportunities, but it also endangers children’s health. Long-term hunger and food insecurity also take a heavy toll on a child’s well-being and restrict access to healthcare, education and welfare services. But with your support, we can change lives by ensuring hungry children don’t become hungry parents.

We understand that children in poverty are more likely to experience violence and drug abuse. This can lead to serious, long-term mental health and developmental issues. But if we can intervene early enough, we can change the futures of vulnerable children in poverty.

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.

Our Solution

We’ll use your donation to initiate and promote health programmes that focus on the following:

  • The development of healthy lifestyle habits.
  • Giving children access to the essential services they need.

PROMOTING EMPOWERMENT

Children living in poverty don’t have access to the most basic educational tools. Books and uniforms are, in many cases, unobtainable. As a result, children run the risk of never reaching their true potential. Teachers are also in short supply in deprived rural areas throughout Central Africa. As a result, many children drop out of education at an early age — and never recover.

Our Solution

We aim to promote leadership skills in children, as we believe it cultivates social responsibility and self-sufficiency. Your contribution will help teach children living in food insecurity and poverty that they can make a difference.

DEVELOPING EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Career opportunities are in short supply across Nigeria - particularly for young adults from poverty-stricken backgrounds. Many children struggle with the basics of reading and writing, let alone the social skills needed to sit an interview. With so few options in life, many turn to a life of crime. 

Our Solution

We’ll put your donation to good use — helping today’s youth secure well-paying jobs. As part of our job skills programme, we’ll:

  • Develop life and jobs skills 
  • Help young people to become good employees
  • Teach young people how to successfully apply for jobs
  • Teach young people how to connect with employers.

Together we have the power to make a real difference in the lives of children and young people. Because every child should grow up safe and happy.
