Around the world millions of children, women, and men are persecuted or denied basic human rights. Minority groups are discriminated against and denied education. Children and women are sexually exploited. Often, these vulnerable groups have nowhere to go for help.

ADRA is dedicated to protecting the vulnerable wherever they can be found in the world.

By working with governments and establishing educational programs in countries around the world, ADRA is the staunch defender of children who are sold to be sex workers, of women who must fight for the chance to learn to read, and for the millions of others around the world who suffer in silence.

For many people, basic education provides the key to breaking the poverty cycle.
