Every year, child helplines around the world field more than 20 million individual cries for help. Until the founding of Child Helpline International in 2003, these organisations did their great work in isolation, and with no access to one another. Now, we are working together every day to bring children’s voices to policy makers and influencers: we make sure the world listens to these voices. And we listen to the listeners, our members, and help them to support one another.
Child Helpline International is a collective impact organisation with 178 members from 146 countries. We coordinate information, viewpoints, knowledge and data from our child helpline members, partners and external sources. This exceptional resource is used to help and support child protection systems globally, regionally, and nationally and to help our members advocate for the rights of children and amplify their voices.
