Every year, child helplines around the world field more than 20 million individual cries for help.  Until the founding of Child Helpline International in 2003, these organisations did their great work in isolation, and with no access to one another. Now, we are working together every day to bring children’s voices to policy makers and influencers: we make sure the world listens to these voices. And we listen to the listeners, our members, and help them to support one another.
