France Parrainages: International humanitarian actions
France Parrainages leads humanitarian projects with local partners (NGO or religious congregations) in 16 developing countries in Africa, Asia, South America and East Europe.
Convinced that education is one of the most effective ways to fight against poverty, to improve health, progress gender equality and ensure peace, France Parrainages and its partners gives the possibility to more than 13,000 children and young people in need to be educated and to access their vital needs and their autonomy. France Parrainages acts internationally through two means of action:

  • International sponsorship which allows us to defend and support children individually and at long term. The sponsors can also build a real relationship through the letters exchanged with their godchild.
  • Development projects: children who are not sponsored can be supported by our development projects. Those projects are being conducted primarily in the areas of education and socio-professional integration, but also in the access to vital needs. These projects benefit a whole community of children.
