ChildFund India Approach

ChildFund India takes a life-stage long-term approach to create opportunities for children, youth, and families with limited resources and in need to empower themselves. We support children from birth and stay with them till the age of 24 years, ensuring that they become adults who bring positive change to their communities. Also, we promote to establish societies that value, protect, and advance the worth and rights of children.

Our ‘Theory of Change’ puts the child at the center of all we do and considers the different layers of potential support and risk to children. This helps us to direct our work and engage with children, families, and communities to ensure the healthy growth and development of children, strengthen institutions, and advocate for broader reform and social change.

We believe that a child needs an enabling environment to thrive, which is created at multiple levels including family, community, institution, national and international.


ChildFund India takes a systematic approach to strengthen community structures that influence a child’s environment. In this, we mobilize communities to act to prevent violence against children, help families that are in crisis and create a thriving environment for children. We, along with our partners, support community practices that enable a child’s optimum development and strengthen community groups that informally work to prevent and respond to crisis affecting children. Also, we link communities with government schemes and services to ensure that children have access to healthcare facilities, education and other means that are important for their optimum growth.

Changing Lives, One Person at a Time.
