Kindernothilfe e.V. (German for "Supporting children in need") was founded in Germany in 1959 as a Christian organisation to support vulnerable and marginalized children and youth to develop their full potentials. Kindernothilfe (KNH) partners with local nongovernmental organisations to implement 609 child-rights-focused projects in 32 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean.
Kindernothilfe’s global head office is located in Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, with coordination structures in nearly all partner countries. Projects and programmes are mainly funded through private donations (more than 80% from individual donors and 20% from public and institutional donors).The overall goal for KNH’s funding and engagement in Zimbabwe is to ensure that children, youth & their families live in a safe, healthy & child friendly environment.
To achieve this during its current 5-year strategic period, KNH Zimbabwe is focusing on 3 main strategic objectives which are: Children and youth are protected from all forms of violence, abuse, and neglect; Partners, communities and children enjoy improved access to basic services for the promotion of their growth and development; and Children & their communities have sustained and diversified livelihood options to enhance their resilience to future environmental shocks.KNH Zimbabwe is currently seeking to expand its partnership portfolio in the country and identify new partner organisations for 2023 and beyond. Local NGOs with experience and capacity to deliver interventions targeting at least one or more of the above strategic objectives are encouraged to apply. It is from these submissions that KNH will identify potential partners to collaborate with in future work.
