Impact: Life stories
Last year, we directly impacted the lives of over 400,000 children in locations as diverse as Sierra Leone, Pakistan and London.
If you want to know more about the difference we have made, read the stories of children and adults we have worked with.
For the most recent evaluations of our projects, check out the Document Library.
A review of project evaluations conducted in 2013 identified Child to Child activities as positively impacting:
- children's life skills - e.g. team work, decision-making, communication, critical and creative thinking.
- learning skills - e.g. reasoning, coming to conclusions, collecting and interpreting data.
- language skills - e.g. literacy, listening and speaking.
