Kindernothilfe e.V.

managed by Ina S. (Communication)

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.

 Die Kindernothilfe hat in Somalia mit der lokalen Organisation vor Ort IAS (International Aid Service) Soforthilfe für die Betroffenen der Dürrekatastrophe geleistet. IAS und Kindernothilfe haben in Flüchtlingslagern in der Hauptstadt Mogadischu sowie in anderen Regionen des Landes Wassertanks errichtet und Lebensmittel, Wasserbehälter und weitere Hilfsgüter verteilt. Zudem ist per Tankwagen Wasser zu den Menschen gebracht worden. IAS und Kindernothilfe haben vier Kinderschutzzentren in Flüchtlingslagern in Mogadischu eingerichtet. Diese Zentren sind in erster Linie eine Anlaufstelle für Kinder zwischen drei und 16 Jahren. Insgesamt 200 Mädchen und Jungen werden dort mit Nahrung und Wasser versorgt, psychologisch betreut und können endlich wieder zur Schule gehen.   Auch in Äthiopien sind lebenswichtige Aufbaunahrung und Schulspeisen verteilt worden. Für 40 Euro ist es möglich gewesen, einen großen Wassertrank für eine Familie zu bauen. Für 300 Euro konnten 10.000 Liter Wasser bereitgestellt werden.
