Read more about child protection
In 100% for the Children, child protection is a pervasive theme that affects all our projects. We actively work with child projection through projects that seek to strengthen vulnerable families to prevent separation, protect street children, and generally put children’s rights on the agenda to strengthen child protection systems and structures in the countries we work in. 100% for the Children is a co-founder of the Danish child protection network, which i.a. has published ’Promising practices in child protection’.

100% for the Children aims to improve access to healthcare and sexual and reproductive health education, targeting street children, young mothers, and marginalized youth, including those with disabilities.

Read more about health
Our programs give children and young people access to fundamental knowledge about health – and especially sexual and reproductive health and rights – so that they can make informed choices now and in the future leading to fewer school drop outs, reduced teen pregnancies and economic empowerment. We also work with menstrual health, mental health for young mothers, and, not least, support for vulnerable families so that children can grow up in a loving and safe environment that ensures children’s development – physically, psychologically, and socially.

100% for the Children aims to enhance educational access and quality while promoting gender equality and reducing barriers such as teen pregnancies, early/forced marriages and high dropout rates.

Read more about education
Marginalization due to socio-economic status, gender, ethnicity, language, religion, disability, and location are driving factors for inequality in education. It is this inequality that 100% for the Children, together with our partners in Kenya, Ghana and Malawi addresses. In our programs we work to reduce inequality in access to education for marginalized children and young people - especially girls and children with disabilities. At the same time, we work to ensure a higher quality of education, which strengthens the children’s abilities, talents, and personal development and prepares them for the future. This includes complementary educational paths like Life Skills and entrepreneurship.

100% for the children works where no one else does 

The organization was founded in 2008 by the chaos pilot and moving spirit Signe Møller. The year before she came to Mombasa, where she met children and families at the Kibarani landfill.

The approximately 3,000 families living in the area lived on top of the waste, under poor sanitary conditions. No NGO would act at the time. But Signe would. The meeting with the families inspired her to make a difference and that is why she started the organization.

The problem we want to solve: Empowerment starts with the right to decide. Children and youth living in poor, vulnerable, or marginalized communities in Kenya, Ghana and Malawi lack adequate resources and face systemic discrimination. Climate change counteracts any positive development in these marginalized communities.

The goal we want to achieve: 100% for the Children is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty and discrimination, ensuring every child and young person we work with has the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their circumstances.

Whom we do it for: We work with the particularly vulnerable in this world. That is children and youth from poor and marginalized families, children with disabilities, children from rural areas, and teenage girls who become pregnant.

Our solutions: Sustainable development is best achieved when people themselves are empowered to drive change. We join forces with local organizations to form alliances on joint advocacy, sharing of knowledge, and a readiness to take action.

We decide on our methods according to:

  1. Biggest impact
  2. Inclusive & contextual approach
  3. Transparency
