Thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery, we're building a brighter, safer future for thousands of children, particularly girls, in sub-Saharan Africa. 

Player support also means we can reach girls facing early child marriage and female genital mutilation (FGM) in Tanzania, so they can make choices about their future – aided by life-skills, vocational and sports training.
