How We Work
Jubilee Campaign tackles the causes of injustice by effective lobbying and transformational charitable action to deliver real and lasting change for Children at Risk. We lobby political authorities and have campaigned at the United Nations since 1989. We also work through dynamic local partners to ensure our support goes directly to strategic urgent needs where we know our contribution isn’t wasted or duplicated. This is how we have made a difference in the lives of children forgotten by the world.
End Child Sacrifice
Child Sacrifice in Uganda is on the increase. This is an intensely disturbing phenomenon that is driven by superstition, exploitation, witchcraft and extreme poverty. Jubilee Campaign and Kyampisi Childcare Ministries have launched an international campaign to stop this gruesome crime.

Rescue The Children
Over ten years ago, Rev K K Devaraj took Danny Smith inside Bombay’s sex industry to reveal girls in danger of being sold into slavery – and a remarkable partnership was created to rescue children at risk. Now, with four homes outside the city and a shelter in the red light district, over 100 children like Glory have been rescued from sex slavery in India, and started a new life within a loving family environment.
Kids Behind Bars
Fr Shay Cullen used his camera as a weapon when he found Rosie crying for her mother in a jail in Olongapo city. He took her photo and demanded that she be set free - this haunting iconic photograph documents that defining moment.
It was a moment of despair to witness the circumstance of the poor and dispossessed, but also a moment of hope with the knowledge that his action secured the child’s release. Little has changed in the Philippines prison system since that day several years ago when Fr Shay found 6-year-old Rosie behind prison bars clutching a drinks can and crying her heart out for her mother.
