Changing children’s lives through locally-led action

We’re a global alliance of locally-grown organisations, working with children and families in our communities for a better today and a better tomorrow.

16 April: Today is Blue Umbrella Day

Our biggest global campaign raises awareness of an overlooked issue: sexual violence impacting boys and young men. Join us.

Around the world, 1 in 13 boys experience sexual abuse. Many more are exploited or exposed to inappropriate sexual materials. These experiences have long-term negative consequences on boys’ health and wellbeing and effects can be felt throughout society.

That’s why, on April 16th, and throughout April every year, we’re drawing attention to this issue through the global #BlueUmbrellaDay campaign
