What is The Listen Campaign?
The Listen Campaign is designed to illuminate the problems faced by the world’s one billion vulnerable and severely disadvantaged children.
Combating the scourges of poverty, disease, pollution, climate change, war, conflict, exploitation, and racism, this is a campaign about children telling their own stories in their own words: providing a truly global and unique perspective of their needs.
In year one, The Listen Charity will focus on supporting 75 projects from the world’s top children’s charities.
