Child Safe Movement
ChildSafe is a global movement inspiring people to protect and empower children and youth around the world.

Across the world there are an estimated 8 million children in institutional care, or orphanages. As individuals, and as businesses, we often react emotionally to what we see as the plight of these children. We want to help. We want to do something for them. We want to donate our money and time to them. However, what if we were actually harming those children further by our well-meaning actions?
