Award-winning social enterprise From Babies with Love is pleased to announce a new partnership with the international charity Street Child. Their first joint project will support some of the 32,000 unaccompanied children impacted by devastating conflict in north east Nigeria, where From Babies with Love will fund Street Child to establish three Child Friendly Spaces.
Each Child Friendly Space will have a trained Child Support Coordinator, helping children to progressively overcome traumatic events, a Social Worker to identify appropriate caregivers (including identifying and training foster parents); and learning materials and equipment to ensure children can continue their education.
Street Child launched its first project in Nigeria earlier this year, to help children and families fleeing from the ongoing conflict. The charity also supports vulnerable children in Sierra Leone and Liberia, where thousands of children lost parents to the Ebola epidemic, and in Nepal, where many children were orphaned in the recent earthquake.
From Babies with Love donates 100% of its profits from its ethically-sourced baby gifts to orphaned and abandoned children. Founder Cecilia Crossley comments: “We’re extremely grateful to all our customers, without whom this partnership would not be possible. We’re already looking forward to new designs and products, that mean our customers will continue helping children all around the world to be loved and cared for.”
Street Child CEO Tom Dannatt adds: “We’re thrilled to partner with From Babies with Love. In addition to their funding contribution to our vital work, we’re excited about their pioneering social enterprise model, and working together creatively to help thousands of the world’s most vulnerable children.”
