Child Helpline International celebrating 10 years
Every 2 seconds, somewhere in the world - a child reaches out to a child helpline for support
In ten years, CHI has grown to a strong network of 173 members operating child helplines in 142 countries, and responded to more than 126 million contacts. Stop It Now! became a member of CHI in 2010 to join a community who believes every child has the right to be heard and has a right to be safe.
CHI puts that belief into practice by listening and responding to children and young people in need. In ten years, CHI has grown to a strong network of 173 members operating child helplines in 142 countries, and responded to more than 126 million contacts. However only one out of three phone calls to child helplines can be answered. There is so much more we must do. We must make it possible that more calls can be answered.
CHI marks 10 years of strengthening child helplines all over the world by launching 10 for 10. What is 10 for 10?
It is 10 different ways you can help us strengthen and grow our networks of support for children worldwide.

One very important step that you can take is to add your name to their petition to the United Nations. Child Helpline International has a voice at the table as the United Nations develops their sustainable development goals. It is crucial that you add your voice to this petition, so world leaders know there is global support for children and the people working every day to answer their calls.
