A World Of Difference

Studies show that when we invest in children, we’re not only changing the lives of individuals. We’re creating positive change in our communities, in our society and even in the economy at large.

There’s More To Do

The issues of child poverty are complex and can’t be solved by any one group or action, but children are strong and resilient. With some help, they can become empowered, healthy, productive agents of change in their own life. When you fundraise for Red Nose Day, you're changing lives.
