Take action and help us support more children

Less than 5% of our income comes from public donations meaning that we raise nearly all our funds ourselves. So we would love your support in fundraising.

Whether through your work, school, university, place of worship or individually, there are lots of ways you can fundraise. We have everything to get you started and can offer you lots of support and resources.

By fundraising for Lgmi, you will not only be raising awareness of the millions of children throughout the world being denied their basic rights, but the vital funds you raise will also help us make a positive difference to their lives.

Donating money to ChildHope is giving the gift of hope and opportunity to children growing up in the toughest circumstances in Africa and Asia. It’s easy to set up your own fundraising page and promote it through social media.
