British Virgin Islands



Since 1998, Help For Children has worked to prevent and treat child abuse. A global foundation supported by the generosity of Hedge Funds Care and Private Equity Cares, Help For Children provides grants to the most effective child abuse prevention and treatment interventions in seven countries, making the world a safer place for children.

Help For Children BVI was founded in 2017 to build upon the HFC Global mission and help the most vulnerable and at-risk children identified by child welfare organizations in the BVI.  This was critically important following the devastation of the 2017 hurricane season.  

This video illustrates the havoc wreaked by the powerful storms that flattened the island, leaving families particularly vulnerable and children at an increased risk for child abuse.  HFC mobilized the alternative investment communities and invested in organizations that are committed to strengthening and rebuilding community resources that keep children safe.  

HFC looks forward to partnering with many of our friends in the video and others in BVI to address child safeguarding against the backdrop of the trauma all have experienced.  Click here to donate now.

Child Abuse

Worldwide, 40 million children are subjected to abuse each year. These children, too young and too scared to seek help, can too easily be hidden from view. HFC, the alternative investment community’s charity, is dedicated to eradicating this silent epidemic.

Our Impact

The alternative investment community is taking a stand because we CAN end child abuse. By uniting as an industry to fight child abuse since 1998, HFC has invested more than $53 million in effective child abuse prevention and treatment programs.

There are no upcoming events at this time.
