Your contribution to a more peaceful world

The world has changed since the Children's Village was built in Trogen in the aftermath of World War II. What remains is the will to create peace through international understanding. We must give children the skills they need to tackle racism and prejudice from an early age and show them how conflicts can be resolved without violence. As a member of the circle of friends, you will support our projects in Switzerland and 11 countries around the globe, making a valuable contribution to a more peaceful world.
