ChildFund DeutschlandHeadquarters: Germany Active in 32 countries
Making a change for children and local communities
ChildFund Deutschland is a child-focused development organization founded in 1978 and based in Nürtingen near Stuttgart. We are committed to helping excluded and vulnerable children all over the world, enhancing their well-being and improving their opportunities. We initiate and coordinate sustainable projects that enable people to overcome poverty and dependency. Focusing on building capacities for families and communities allows us to improve the children’s living environment and to contribute to a lasting change. We believe that child sponsorships are a reliable and effective way to do this. Thus they have always been a main pillar of our work.
How we work
Holistic support for children, their families and communities. Healthcare, education, income: We create lasting changes and invest in the future of entire societies.
With the help of private and public donors, we target and overcome specific challenges, including lack of water, malnutrition, HIV, lack of economic opportunities.
When people are affected by natural disasters or wars, we support those in need and help them to recover their livelihoods. Our emergency plans enable us to react quickly and precisely.
