The strategy’s focus areas have been clustered into three overarching themes for interventions:
- Child Survival and Development with a particular attention on the first 1000 days of life
- Child Safety and Protection anchored around safe schools; and
- Youth Leadership through think tanks that will advocate interventions in ethical Leadership, Youth Entrepreneurship, Civic Participation and Human Rights.
Challenges facing children are global; hence the Fund’s historical ties with international partners to better the lives of the vulnerable children and the youth.
The Board has been instrumental in fundraising in the US for the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust campaign.
