On the Twenty Third Day of Christmas


23rd  December:

On the Edge in India

After initial research, In 2014 Children on the Edge will be beginning new work in the State of Bihar, India helping to educate the children of the lowest caste of people in this area.

This caste is seen as the lowest of the low and condemned to the very bottom of the social pile. The caste live in extremely poor conditions surrounded by filth and surviving on a diet of rats. Children show serious signs of malnourishment are overlooked and often abused.  

With no opportunity for learning, the girls are severely vulnerable to trafficking, a fate the organisation wants to prevent by providing an education.

Bid for our ISAK advent package now to support this valuable work.

Sowetos mini graduates

A year after the Soweto Child Friendly Space in Jinja, Uganda was set up; they celebrated their first ‘Graduation Day’! The eldest group of children are now leaving to start primary school after completing their early years education at the Centre. 

This would not have been possible a year ago, but with the provision of early childhood learning, the Centre staff liaising with local schools to make places available and the building of relationships with parents in order to promote the value of education for children, this milestone has been reached.

Matilda, a teacher at the Child Friendly Space says; “ I love working with the children. They are the future adults of tomorrow and future politictians. Developing them at this early age will help them to change. I just love it.”

Today is the last day of the Week 3 Isak Advent Auction. All the money bid from you wonderful people will go directly to Children on the Edge. Help us to help the charity to help these children. Please visit our ebay link and place your bid.

Are you just flesh & bone?



"A chair is just a chair. I will sit and stare at walls my whole life. I am just flesh & bone. The world is just a rock.
Sometimes you have to wrap yourself in the beauty of the mundane. Everyday must be surrounded in wonder and beauty."

We look at our world and add beautiful happy things. We hope you enjoy them.

New Charcoal Lovebird wallpaper soon available by the roll.

On the Twenty First Day of Christmas

21st December: Staying on the Edge

With Children on the Edge, it’s all in the name. The organisation focuses on children leading forgotten lives in barren, dangerous places. Those without parental care, neglected or persecuted by their governments, ignored by international media and out of reach for large overseas agencies.

As a smaller organisation we can often get to places that others can’t reach and tread the path less trodden. This is why they are currently researching opportunities in North Korea.

After a visit to Rason City and North Hamhyong Province by their director and Asia Regional Manager, the charity has connected with some local partners who reach more than 5,500 children in dire need in one of the world’s most isolated and impoverished countries.

in response to the widespread famine in North Korea and in a country which thrives on secrecy, these partners have slowly forged relationships and built trust with key officials and teachers. As a result, they have access into parts of the country, which were previously considered unreachable by any international organisation, and Children on the Edge are planning a strategy of support for 2014.

Watch this space!

Thank you! The Week 2 of Advent Isak Charity Auction raised £120 for Children on the Edge. A happy highest bidder will receive a package containing at least £200 worth of Isak products and Children on the Edge will automatically receive all £120 directly.

The Week 3 of Advent Isak Charity Auction is now live with £300 worth of Isak goodies. Please visit the auction link and help us support this wonderful charity. The auction will be live until Sunday evening 22nd Dec.

Many Thanks

20th December: Children get green fingered in Thailand

To provide food for the Children’s Crisis Centre supported by Children on the Edge, nearby there is a kitchen garden which helps the project to be self sustaining. Not only this, but the garden is a fantastic opportunity for the refugee children from the Centre who visit on a weekly basis and use the experience to learn about responsibility, nutrition and basic agricultural skills. Each year the staff and the children get agricultural training where they can learn about the land in their area and how to get the best out of it.

The children love the garden trips and so far have planted and harvested some great crops of aubergines, chillies, tomatoes and pumpkins!

Thank you! The Week 2 of Advent Isak Charity Auction raised £120 for Children on the Edge. A happy highest bidder will receive a package containing at least £200 worth of Isak products and Children on the Edge will automatically receive all £120 directly.
