Theirworld believes that every infant, child and young person deserves access to good healthcare and the best opportunities for education and learning.

Theirworld is an innovative charity which helps children to fulfil their potential. Sarah Brown founded the charity in 2002 as PiggyBankKids with the aim of helping professionals to do work that saves and transforms children’s lives.

Today, what many believe is impossible - educating every child in the world - Theirworld knows is possible. Theirworld works to unlock the solutions needed, making the seemingly impossible probable and helping every child have their best possible start in life.

Together, we are helping children and young people to unlock their potential by focussing our efforts on three causes:

  • Giving every child the best start in life
  • Every child has the right to go to school and learn
  • Every young adult has access to skills development

Across all our causes, our commitment is to the most marginalised children and young people, especially those caught up in conflicts and emergencies or discriminated against.

Theirworld understands the power of bringing groups of passionate, influential people together - the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The most effective and enduring impact comes from the collaborative and uniting efforts, and nothing can be solved in isolation.   

Only with the next generation of thinking, partnership and youth will we collectively overcome the obstacles facing today's children and young people. We never settle for the small wins and always reach for the highest hanging fruit, to ensure our work is impactful and life changing.  

With over 263 million children throughout the world not in education, Theirworld's pilot school programmes and Code Club initiatives aim to target the fund on providing safe spaces for children to learn in the Middle East and Africa. The funding from players received will go directly towards this work.
