Since 1990 Children on the Edge has existed to assist children living in the most challenging situations across the world. The charity was co-founded by Anita Roddick (who set up The Body Shop™) and Rachel Bentley (CEO of Children on the Edge).
The very first crisis response was in Romania orphanages over 30 years ago and currently are campaigning on behalf of 900 Dalit children in India. These children face discrimination in every area of life, from access to education, to a lack of accessible medical care, to restrictions on where they can live and which jobs they can aspire to when they grow up. These children face illegal caste discrimination and abuse from the society around them.
You can help in two ways:
- Buy a £5.00 Hemp Hard-Working Hand Protector (small 30ml). The Body Shop™ will then donate £1 to Children on the Edge for every single one sold!
- Add a £1 donation to Children on the Edge on your order. All of that gets passed by The Body Shop to Children on the Edge.
That’s it – your £2.00 can help educate a child in a safe space for a FULL week!!
