Get involved

For a small amount per month, you give children education, better health, a safe upbringing and then the possibility of a stable livelihood.

As a sponsor of a sponsored child at Barnfonden, you support our work in an entire area. We ensure that children can go to preschool and school, have access to clean water, nutritious food, medicines, vaccinations and other health care. We improve families’ livelihood opportunities and create security in emergency situations.

Through letters and reports, you see how your support is beneficial and contributes to the development of your sponsored child and the entire surrounding society.

You can receive up to SEK 3,000 in tax reduction per year for gifts you give to Barnfonden.

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.
