Giving Children the Chance to Choose

Children in Crossfire exists to make a significant and lasting contribution towards the eradication of poverty. The charity was founded in 1996 by Richard Moore.


With your support Children in Crossfire gives children the chance to choose a better future.

The story of Children in Crossfire has its roots in what began as a tragedy and ended in the triumph of the human spirit to overcome violence and its negative associations.

Just as Richard practised compassion in the face of challenge, Children in Crossfire pursues its vision through and with that same compassion. Specifically, it responds to the rights and needs of children and young people caught in the crossfire of global poverty, injustice and inequality by using a Two-Pronged Approach;

  1. We work in partnership with organisations in Tanzania and Ethiopia to address the developmental needs of young children whose lives are caught up in the injustice of poverty.

  2. We see development education as an important part of our work in Ireland and the UK to introduce people to the structural causes of poverty and help them find a role in making the world a better place.

Change is dependent on people, communities, and governments all working together to ensure that the right conditions are in place.
