Impact report 2023 published

2023 was once more a year of global challenges. An unprecedented number of people worldwide were displaced from their homesteads and had to flee or find shelter elsewhere. At the same time, there is a decrease in official development aid and support for the least developed countries worldwide and a decline in international solidarity.

Despite these challenges, we are grateful that we succeeded in our mission to give more, better, and faster support to children and communities in 2023. Standing firm in turbulent times, we saw growing interest in our way of working for children and engaging communities. Our early childhood development expertise area has attracted more attention internationally, which is very promising. We found that staying focused on what we do well pays off. Recognition of our expertise and value in (child) protection has brought us into collaboration with large INGOs and the US in the DRC. Acknowledgement of our strong knowledge of problems and solutions in early childhood development in Rwanda enabled us to co-develop and design a USD 10 million grant with UNICEF and the Rwandan government on ECD. Our effectiveness is demonstrated in projects like Kids@Risk in the DRC. Our projects are well integrated in local governments and society. Also, we have been given the opportunity to certify at the Core Humanitarian Standard after completing an audit performed by Humanitarian Quality Assurance Initiative.

We are very pleased and proud to tell that we have finalized and published our 2023 impact report. Our report is not only an overview of our activities and finances but it tells our story. This story will bring you to different places in the world where we help hundreds of thousands of children to grow out of poverty towards a promising future. Travel with us on our journey, on the way we will tell you of the choices we made, how we learned and adjusted, and the impact we made reaching our annual destination.
