The Problem

Over a billion children are impacted by poverty, disease, pollution, climate change, war & conflict, exploitation and racism around the world. Their voices are not being heard.

Covid is estimated to have made the situation 20% worse. Charities around the world are disparate, communicate little and are often competitive. They require the help of the media and creative industries to create a global communications campaign to maximize social good.
