Who we are
Kindernothilfe is a Non-Governmental Organisation founded in Germany in 1959. We partner with local non-governmental organisations in 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe to realize and protect children's rights. We reach out to 779,540 children with programmes which help vulnerable and marginalized children to access. more
All projects and programmes supported by Kindernothilfe use a Child Rights Approach to reach the common main objective: Vulnerable and marginalized children get access to sustainable opportunities to grow and to develop their full potential. We are committed to fight for the fulfillment of all child rights: the rights to provision, to protection and to participation.
Children have the right to be heard and to be actors of their own lives. This sentence was in a preamble added to Kindernothilfe’s statutes in 2011. Disaster relief for the Horn of Africa, protection of children in project work as well as the implementation of ecological child rights were some of the focuses of our work in 2011.
