Climate change causes severe violations of children's rights
Barnfonden works to create a safe and bright future for children who are affected by climate change.
The situation is acute in many parts of the world. Poverty and hunger are increasing due to climate change, the pandemic and the war in Ukraine. The children are the ones who suffers the most. For example in East Africa, where the ongoing drought is affecting more and more people. You can be involved and make a difference for the most vulnerable.

Children as priority since 1991

Member of ChildFund Alliance
As a member of the ChildFund Alliance, Barnfonden is one of twelve organizations who works with children and for children to strengthen their rights and to ensure their safety in a changing world. Everything we do we do for the children.
Holistic perspective with focus on education, health, and childrens safety
It is through a holistic perspective on children’s development that we carefully plan and carry out our work in close collaboration with children, families and other important actors who work for positive social change.
Regardless of the type of intervention, children’s rights, children’s safety, concern for the environment and climate as well as equality and inclusion are central parts.
Addresses the underlying causes of poverty
We address the fundamental causes of poverty and vulnerability, by creating conditions for self-help and sustainability. 356 million children live in extreme poverty (Unicef/World Bank 2020). Together we can change this and give them a better future.

Education is a keystone for a thriving community. Barnfonden’s work enables access to school and education for more children around the world.
Good health is a prerequisite for a sustanible and long-term developement. Every child has the right to grow up healthy.
Stable income in the family means that more children can avoid child labor and instead go to school and grow up in security.
Children have the right to a safe upbringing without violence or child labour. Together, we ensure that more children can grow up in security for a better future.
Our vision is a sustainable world where children are listened to, cared for, and respected.
A world where every child can say:
– I am safe. – I am healthy. – I am happy. – I am educated. – I have a voice.
Together with children, we create sustainable solutions that protect and advance their rights and well-being. We do this through partnerships, empowerment and a holistic approach.
