The OYC was founded in 1960 and has since given thousands of young people from all walks of life the chance to experience adventure under sail. They run a range of sailing programmes for underprivileged, vulnerable and disabled youths. OYT sail with around 450 young people each year. Roughly two-thirds will be disadvantaged or vulnerable in some way: they work in partnership with other organisations like mainstream and special schools and youth clubs; other charities; local authorities and social work teams and many more.
Child Rescue Nepal rescues and cares for trafficked Nepali children who are sold for child labour. Children are saved from a life of physical abuse and forced labour, brought home, provide medical and psychological treatment and try to re-unite them with their families. We aim to stamp out the trafficking of children by carrying out anti-trafficking work, such as community education, pursuing the prosecution of traffickers, and improving schools. Over the last 15 years, they have rescued over 600 children.
