The Oliver Herbrich Children's Fund

The foundation’s goal is to partner and develop projects that benefit children and young adults. To promote these objectives, we collaborate with experienced local partners to leverage existing structures and expertise. Projects are exclusively co-funded to ensure our partner’s commitment.


The projects financed should be new and (as far as possible) not yet started. The embedding of projects within established structures is also desirable.


At the beginning and end of each project, we focus on evaluating the project’s goals and sustainability.

Completed project

­­Poverty means exclusion and lack of education. "Camino Seguro" helps the children from the garbage dump in Guatemala City to break this cycle.

Current project

19.9 million people worldwide are blind due to the clouding of the eye lens. In Tanzania, cataracts are the cause of blindness in 65% of cases. This is despite the fact that many people's eyesight could be restored.

Current project

In Liberia (West Africa), every fifth child dies before it reaches its fifth birthday. Adults do not live beyond the age of 41 to 44 years. Frequently, jungle clinics are the only place they can turn to in the event of illness or injury.

Mission statement

Children are the bearer of hope for every society. They represent the ideal of a better future particularly in places in which it is nearly impossible to improve living conditions.


Although no-one chooses the place where he or she is born, everyone should be given the chance of a hopeful future.


Children and young people in particular deserve this chance.
