Organisation Description

Since 1985, the Fondation Aide aux Enfants with headquarters in Geneva, has devoted itself to improving of the lives of the poorest citizens of Colombia. The Foundation's "Bambi" homes take in children between 0 and 6 years of age who live in extreme situations - abandoned, working, mistreated and abused children - in order to give them back their physical and psychological balance. At the same time, the Foundation takes care of a central problem of Colombian families by helping these children's parents, mostly single mothers, to become financially autonomous on a long term basis through its professional training programme.
