In June 2002, a group of 11 child-centred international development organisations joined together under the banner of ChildFund Alliance to become a global force for children.
ChildFund Alliance protects the historic strength and reputation for accountability associated with the work of these organisations since 1938, and creates opportunities for joint initiatives serving children and families in need.
Alliance members are committed to creating sustainable, child-focused, community-based development programs in areas where children are impacted by war, natural disaster, poverty and global health issues. Members promote child sponsorship as a comprehensive and meaningful approach to child development.
With the addition of ChildFund Japan bringing total membership to 12, ChildFund Alliance member agencies offer a combined US $561 million in resources annually to children and families in 58 countries.
