Kindernothilfe is a Non-Governmental Organisation founded in Germany in 1959. We partner with local non-governmental organisations in 29 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe to realize and protect children's rights. We reach out to over 1.5 million children with programmes which help vulnerable and marginalized children to access.
Kindernothilfe (KNH) was founded in1959 by a group of dedicated Christians in Duisburg, Germany, in order to help needy children in India. Over time, it has become one of the largest Christian organizations in Europe for children's aid.
Kindernothilfe is a charitable organisation which has been working to implement the rights of children for more than 50 years. This can only be done with people committed to help. More and more people wish to give long-term help which goes beyond giving donations. They want the wealth they have accumulated or part of it to prepare the ground for reliable long-term help and create something which will remain for prosperity.
Kindernothilfe works on national and international levels by joining alliances, co-operating with networks and other organisations to achieve a global improvement of economic, social and political structural conditions. It participates in campaigns or initiates its own campaigns.
