Help Children Foundation &
kids to life
In war and crisis areas such as Syria or Turkey, the distribution of over 2,000 survivors’ pensions to children in need is annually one of the main pillars of foundations. Various educational projects and the targeted support of children’s children are further important projects of the international help of kids to life. The Help Children Foundation regularly supports the international projects of kids to life.
In Unterhaching near Munich, the Foundation’s 16,000 m² pedagogic center for children and youths is used by more than 20 social institutions with over 3,000 children a year. It has a children’s workshop, a petting zoo with a variety of animals, sports fields, a climbing garden and two overnight accommodation houses.
Currently, the Foundation is increasingly committed to refugee children, provides assistance to children from refugee camps, and organizes football camps for unaccompanied minor refugees and home children.
With the ever increasing number of children to be looked after, the foundation has come to its capacity limit. For this reason, the construction of a large kitchen has become indispensable in order to provide the children with meals. The Help Children Foundation also supports kids to life in this important project. In no other life stage is food as important as in childhood. In the first ten years they learn the nutritional behavior, which forms the basis for their lifelong eating habits.
At kids to life the children are not only well-cared for, but learn a lot about different ingredients and recipes in cookery and baking workshops and acquire basic knowledge about different types of preparation. In a very playful way, a respectful handling of food is also conveyed.
