Celebration is central to Christmas!

The celebration of peace and joy. The display of a spirit of generosity. The promise of a new year and a new start. But disadvantaged children celebrate differently. They celebrate what other kids take for granted: a meal on the table; a healthy body; the opportunity to learn to read and write; the ability to avoid forced labour, early marriage or human trafficking.

Some children in our program are celebrating their birthdays this Christmas season. Help them celebrate well.
