About us

Kindernothilfe was founded 1959 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 holds the seal of approval awarded by the German Central Institute for Social Issues (DZI). Today it supports more than 300.000 children and young people in 27 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe.
Holistic support
Kindernothilfe primarily uses the support form “sponsorship” to offer holistic assistance for disadvantaged young people. That accounts for a basic school education and vocational training as well as good nutrition and health care. Support is not only given to the children but also to their families and the whole community. In order to improve the children’s situation also for the future the crucial topic at the Kindernothilfe is to implement children’s rights.
Kindernothilfe does not operate abroad on its own but works together with local partner organizations. Thus, specific cultures and life circumstances are considered and adapted to the help needed. The support of children is always granted irrespective of religion.
At home
The head office is in Duisburg. Here, staff members coordinate the work at home and abroad. More than 40 groups of volunteers support the educational work as well as publicity campaigns.
KNH is a registered charitable organization and a member of the Diaconic Services of the Evangelical Church in Germany. More than 90 percent of the work is financed through donations from 100.000 people who support Kindernothilfe.
Foundation, offices, Switzerland, Austria
The Kindernothilfe-Foundation was founded in summer 1999. Since 1996 offices of Kindernothilfe have been established in Austria and Switzerland.

Ein großes Dankeschön für deine Hilfe für Kinder in Favelas!

Rund 11,5 Mio. Menschen leben in Brasiliens städtischen Armenvierteln, den Favelas. Alleine im Südosten Brasiliens wohnen fast zehn Prozent aller Kinder und Jugendlichen in Favelas. In São Paulo unterstützt die Kindernothilfe zusammen mit der lokalen Partnerorganisation UNAS 400 Mädchen und Jungen zwischen sechs und 16 Jahren in drei Kinder- und Jugendzentren.
Dort spielen Gewaltpräventionskurse eine große Rolle, um Kinder und Jugendliche in ein gewaltfreies Leben mit Zukunftsperspektiven zu entlassen. Außerdem lernen die Kinder durch sportliche Herausforderungen und Aktivitäten das Leben in einer Gemeinschaft, Toleranz und Fairplay - auch außerhalb des Spielfeldes. Diese Projektinhalte setzt die Kindernothilfe seit der WM in Brasilien stetig fort um nachhaltig einen Perspektivwandel in der jungen brasilianischen Generation zu bewirken.
