About Us

Our Mission

Heart for Children is committed worldwide to helping poor, abandoned and vulnerable children. We work on a small scale, so that visible results can be seen in the short term. The key focus points of our work are: childcare, poverty reduction, education and self-reliance.

Our Board

Together, we are working on the best possible care for underprivileged children, building a brighter future together. Read more about the composition of our board here.

Our History

The Heart for Children Foundation was founded in 2008. This year we've reached our 10 year milestone, and we're now providing structural assistance in countries such as South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Lesotho, Swaziland and Haiti and on an incidental basis in disasters such as in Nepal and the Philippines.

Our Team

With a small team of four people, we work daily on the Heart for Children goal: giving abandoned, vulnerable and homeless children a new chance and a bright future.

Our Volunteers

Heart for Children could not exist without the help of our great volunteers, who help us with market days, sending out newsletters and by promoting our work in general.


Heart for Children has participated in two documentaries: One about the work of Heart for Children in Haiti, containing four episodes, together with Family7 and one about the work of Heart for Children in Uganda, consisting of three episodes. The documentaries are only available in Dutch.

Policy and Accountability

Heart for Children is an idealistic non-profit organization with an ANBI status. We strive for transparency and trust. While meeting all necessary standards, we also voluntarily commit and conform to CBF regulations; requiring a more stringent set of standards be met.


Very often we receive questions from people about Heart for Children. That is why we have made an overview which gives you an overview of the most frequently asked questions with an answer. It can help you quickly get a picture of our mission and our work.
