Over the past ten years, ARK’s programmes in the UK, Southern Africa, eastern Europe and India have transformed the lives of more than 200,000 children. In tackling access to healthcare in sub-Saharan Africa, improving educational opportunities in the UK, US and India, and giving children the chance to live in a caring and nurturing environment in Eastern Europe, ARK is helping to overcome some of the most severe blights on children’s lives.
But too many children are still suffering. ARK’s mission to initiate and implement programmes that truly transform children’s lives is as vital today as it was a decade ago.
