Direct Help. Worldwide. Since 1975.
Since 1975 the Children Charity Organization Third World initiates, promotes and supports projects aiming at health, care and education of children in the third world. Supported by local confidants, our organization seeks to operate both effectively and efficiently.
Continuity in helping others to help themselves
Our projects, spread over Africa, Asia and South America, are united by a common goal: improving children’s living conditions where physical and intellectual talent can develop freely and bear fruit. Only if human beings know where they belong, dignity and self-respect will prosper and find its proper expression. We therefore support resources – within education, healthcare and human care – from which children as the weakest members of our society will benefit for the rest of their lives.
As we seek to live up to our own aspirations and ambitions, our working process requires patience, trust and the openness to self-criticism. Having completed over 3 decades of successful projects we confidently welcome new tasks and challenges and still will be in the future.
The Projects // Working Standards
Ever since our children’s fund was setup, we have monitored the planning and implementation of every project, applying strict quality standards. In over three decades of experience in practical humanitarian aid, the following standards became the basis and constant regulatory norm for our development work.
Transparent organization Routine work processes and transparent personnel structures inform us about the project status at all times. We highly value the competence and reliability of our local partners - doctors and nurses, pastors and teachers, engineers and technicians – and have made positive experiences with our ombudsman throughout the past years. Their inspection reports form the basis of all strategic and operative decisions.
Sustainability impact Upholding the principle of responsible self-help, we transfer the projects that we have initiated to the local population or local partner organizations – without losing sight of the project’s long-term development. Numerous expert evaluations ensure that schools, orphanages and health centers maintain their caring role, proving us that the donated funds are being used efficiently and our projects really do make a difference.
Socio-cultural perceptiveness Extensive talks with the village communities, doctors, teachers and mayors function as a basis for the planning process of our projects. The needs and know-how of these contacts have a decisive influence on our project design. The profound intercultural skills of our staff in Germany have facilitated constructive development work over many years.
We thrive to fulfill our aim of being accountable to the many ambitious donors and are therefore proud that many of our donors regularly compliment us on our economic employment of their donated funds as well as our swift flow of action within the organization. Since 1992, the Children’s Charity Organization has been awarded the DZI (Deutsches Zentralinstitut für Soziale Fragen, www.dzi.de) donation sign of approval. They certified our transparent practices, our humanitarian work as being statutory, that our promotional material and information are true, unambiguous and factual, and that the allocation and sourcing of funds as well as our financial status are in line with our accounting. All over Germany, only around 260 of the 2000 documented foundations are entitled to carry this certification.
Donate and Help
The people who support our work financially or with donations in kind allow us to provide real opportunity for disadvantaged children and adolescents in the ’Third World’ to live a healthy and self-determined life. Humanitarian visions cannot be realized without donors supporting our work, proving us their succor and helping us to still have an impact even in the future.
