Organisational Context

ChildFund’s Sport for Development work is built around an innovative program, Pass It Back, delivered through a partnership with World Rugby. The program aims to equip children and young people in Asia to overcome challenges, inspire positive social change and ‘pass it back ’to their communities. Delivering an integrated rugby and life skills curriculum in a safe environment, the program promotes the values of the Game and builds a new generation of leaders in disadvantaged communities across Asia.

ChildFund partnered with World Rugby for Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan. As part of World Rugby’s Impact Beyond 2019 program, over 25,000 children in Asia will benefit from their involvement in Pass It Back, giving them the opportunity to participate in sport and develop life-long skills and knowledge.

From this success, ChildFund has begun to work with other sporting codes and established projects supporting the improvement of safeguarding in sport practices for sports federations at all levels and using the power of sport to empower children and youth.

ChildFund Australia is an independent and non-religious international development organisation that works to reduce poverty for children in developing communities. We work in partnership with children and their communities to create lasting change by supporting long-term community development, responding to humanitarian emergencies and promoting children’s rights.

ChildFund Australia implements programs with a range of partners in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Timor-Leste, Vietnam, and other Pacific nations, and manages projects delivered by partner organisations throughout Asia, Africa and the Americas. ChildFund’s work is funded through child and community sponsorship, government grants as well as donations from individuals, trusts and foundations, and corporates.

ChildFund Australia is a member of the ChildFund Alliance – a global network of 11 organisations which assists more than 9 million children and families in over 50 countries. ChildFund Australia is a registered charity, a member of the Australian Council for International Development, and fully accredited by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade which manages the Australian Government’s overseas aid program.


A world without poverty where all children and young people can say: “I am safe. I am educated. I contribute. I have a future.”


We partner to create community and systems change which enables vulnerable children and young people, in all their diversity, to assert and realise their rights.
