Code for Preventing and Combating Corruption

Kindernothilfe's activities are motivated by a sense of responsibility towards God, our donors, the general public and, last but not least, the children who receive help through the projects of our partner organisations and sponsors. Through the effective and efficient use of the funds entrusted to us, Kindernothilfe carries out its mission, as stated in the statutes, in a goal-oriented manner and as effectively and efficiently as possible. This applies to the work of Kindernothilfe and its partners and includes the responsible handling of resources. Projects are carried out in a competent manner using professional methods and procedures when it comes to planning, organisation, monitoring/controlling and evaluating effectiveness.
Corruption, corrupting and corrupt behaviour threaten the development projects which Kindernothilfe supports through its partners and local sponsors. Through corruption, appropriated funds are taken away from their originally intended purpose and-in our specific case-are stolen from the children, their families and communities. Kindernothilfe is very aware that corruption is a very damaging world-wide phenomenon. For this reason, the prevention and control of corruption must start with us and cannot be limited to our partners, sponsors and projects.
