In the U.S. many thousands of children and young people have an incredibly tough start in life, living in deprived areas where they may be out of school, neglected and at risk of abuse. In such areas, children and young people often miss out on the safety net provided by a good education and a stable family environment. The rebuilding of lives, the provision of health and literacy programs, after-school care and help in devastating family circumstances can make all the difference to setting a child on the right track in later life.
