Helping the children that are hardest to reach this Christmas

Railway Children fights for children around the world that suffer from poverty, abuse and exploitation. But some children are harder to reach than others – girls. Hidden away in brothels, forced into early marriage, sold as child labour or groomed and lured by predators – these girls disappear and become trapped in a life they cannot escape. A life of abuse, trauma and despair.

This Christmas, with support from across the rail industry, Railway Children is changing that with their This Girl Can’t campaign.

Helping the children that are hardest to reach this Christmas… girls

Railway Children is an international charity that has changed the lives of more than 300,000 children over the last 22 years thanks to the massive support they have from across the rail industry. They fight for children around the world that have no one else to protect and care for them. Children who are forced to survive on the streets and around the railways in India, Africa and here in the UK where they often put themselves in danger using public transport to run away from home.

But there are some children it is harder for Railway Children to reach than others – girls – and the reasons why are terrifying.

Hidden away in brothels, forced into early marriage, sold as child labour or groomed and lured by predators – these girls disappear and become trapped in a life they cannot escape. A life of abuse, trauma and despair. This Christmas, with support from across the transport sector, Railway Children is changing that with their This Girl Can’t campaign. Their teams know how to spot the girls in danger and can reach them before it is too late – offering shelter, food, support and advice. Making sure they are safe and working with them and their families until they know how to stay safe for good.

Please support Railway Children however you can this Christmas, and together we can reach these girls and give them back their hope and their future.
