What we achieved together in 2022: read all about it in our annual report

While the war in Ukraine and the terrible earthquakes in Turkey and Syria dominated the media and captured everyone’s attention in 2022, Enfants du Monde continued to work in other regions of the world that were also shaken by multiple crises.

Thanks to its partners, donors and sponsors, Enfants du Monde was able to provide quality education and access to health care to hundreds of thousands of underprivileged children and mothers in 2022, as our annual report attests. Every donation counted: thank you!

Below are the key figures for our activities in 2022:

Because with education, you build your future

  • 717,801 students supported, 42% of them girls

In 2022, we gave pupils access to education even in emergency situations in Burkina Faso.
In Guatemala, where schools remained closed for much of the year, we supported pupils and teachers to learn from home.
In Niger, the “second chance schools” programme came to an end, and our mandates to offer quality education to young people who have dropped out of school or are outside the system, on behalf of Swiss Development Aid, continued in Niger and Chad.

Because recognising your rights at an early age helps you to be more respectful

Every year, Enfants du Monde enables Romani pupils to study children’s rights in class through its “Un Monde plus Juste” programme, and invites them to celebrate the International Day of Children’s Rights at its “La parole aux Enfants” festival.

  • 181 pupils made aware of children’s rights
  • 2 cantons: Geneva and Vaud

Budget and transparent management

Our budget: CHF 9 million
Mandates for education programmes in Africa from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, part of which (in Chad) is co-financed by the French Development Agency (AFD), account for 15% of total annual funding.

Enfants du Monde is proud to be an NGO certified with the Zewo quality label since 1971. This label is awarded to organisations and institutions that manage the donations they receive transparently and effectively.
