Seeking Safety

Our second grantmaking portfolio, Seeking Safety, is a search for the ways children and youth actively seek, create, and cultivate safety—especially those who are unable to take safety for granted. This may include children and youth in institutionalized care or detention, migrants, children working in informal economies, and those that are homeless, living in foster care, or refugee settings. 

Under development for launch in late 2021, Seeking Safety will explore how children and youth exercise power even if it initially appears that they have very little.  It will draw lessons and insights from the vantage of the most powerful experts of this experience—children, themselves. Together, we will explore: How do children define safety? Where do children find safety? How can we engage in mutual learning with children to advance our understanding of the issue of child harm?
