Give every child a voice that gets heard. Because every child has the potential to change our world. Children deserve a chance at a fair future and the freedom to develop their identities. To achieve this and safeguard their rights, we engage with kids in their environment and work to improve their lives.

Kindernothilfe e.V. contributes to these Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are international goals of the United Nations for a better and more sustainable future.

About us

We are active as part of a global movement committed to ensuring that society as a whole meets its responsibilities in providing children with an education, protecting them from violence and economic exploitation in addition to securing their right to participate in society. In taking our cue from these four children’s rights, we aim to help shape the most pressing issues of today and tomorrow. We support projects initiated at grassroots level and conduct programs for especially disadvantaged children. In this way, we foster more equitable living conditions that take people and the environment equally into consideration. This includes partnering with others to assist during and after humanitarian disasters. Thanks to collaborations around the world, we not only learn from other organisations that work with and for children but, in turn, also share our expertise through training and consultation. Through our advocacy work, political campaigns as well as educational and public relations work focusing on development policies, we lobby officials and decision makers at a local and global level to uphold children’s rights. To this end, we cooperate closely with our partners as well as in alliances and networks. By extension, we want to enable people to support our cause either financially or through sponsorships and volunteering.
