Hilfsorganisation Africachild e. V.

Mission Statement

Convinced that every child should grow up in a warm and loving environment close to its mother, we want to provide help across Africa to all those who do not enjoy such basic conditions. In particular, we want to prevent young women from having to abandon their children because of poverty or sickness. Any young mother should not be forced to:

  • leave her child in an orphanage
  • leave her child with another family or put it up for adoption
  • abandon or even kill her child.

 

The goals of Africachild are thus clearly within the spirit of the Hague Convention of May 29th, 1993 on Protection of Children and Cooperation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption. We want “as a matter of priority, [to take] appropriate measures to enable the child to remain in the care of his or her family of origin.“ (See preamble of the Hague Convention)
