About Child Helpline International

Learn more about our history, mission, organization, and the team who make it all possible!


Child Helpline International is a collective impact organization with more than 160 members from 140 countries and territories around the world.

We coordinate information, viewpoints, knowledge and data from our child helpline members, partners and external sources. This exceptional resource is used to support child protection systems globally, regionally and nationally, and to help our members advocate for the rights of children and amplify their voices.

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 policymakers and influencers. We make sure the world listens to these voices.
