  • Response (0–3 months)
    As soon as possible after a disaster hits – usually within 24 hours – we begin work to meet the immediate survival needs of people affected by the disaster.
  • Recovery (2–12 months)
    We help families to make a living again to strengthen their economic security, and to ensure children can continue their education and remain safe from harm.
  • Reconstruction (9–36 months)
    We continue to focus on children's physical, psychosocial and educational wellbeing. We also help their communities to prepare for future crises.
