Created in 1994, Children Action is a Swiss Foundation whose objective is to bring concrete help in the life of children. The Foundation carries out targeted projects aiming at access to fundamental rights for all, more particularly in the fields of health and care, prevention and information, education and training, and the protection and rights of the child.
Children Action carries out medium-sized projects, giving priority to quality over quantity.
Children Action develops, for each project, a collaborative environment with the aim of increasing the supply of resources necessary for the implementation of the programs.Thanks to this system, through local partnerships, the involvement of volunteer teams, equipment donations, benefactor’s pro bono services and the fact that 100% of the administrative costs are covered by the Founder the value of the projects funded by the Foundation is multiplied by 3 on average.
Children Action runs its own programs or works on the strategic development, implementation and monitoring of projects in collaboration with its partners. It also acts as an incubator and catalyst for projects with the goal of accelerating the implementation of initiatives, replicating successful programs or transforming innovative ideas into concrete actions.
The Foundation mobilises with the determination to carry out projects in the sole interest of the beneficiaries, evaluating the ethical criteria, feasibility, quality and effectiveness of programs in the following areas:

Thanks to this system, via local partnerships, the involvement of volunteer teams, donations of equipment, pro bono services from benefactors and cost optimization, the value of projects financed by the Foundation is multiplied by three on average.
In 2021, partnerships with the University Hospitals of Geneva, the d'Harcourt Foundation, the Kaleidos Foundation in Argentina, the Taller de los Niños Association in Peru, the Health Committees of 14 provinces in Vietnam, the participation of relatives, the collaboration with different structures and volunteers have contributed to multiplying the funds allocated by our donors.
