The Vision of ABC Children’s Aid is to give

  • Street children a shelter and where possible a permanent home in an ABC village. 
  • Poor children an opportunity to go to school. 
  • Sick children access to medical care. 
  • Children without career prospects the hope of a better life through further education. 
  • Needy and suffering children care to meet their practical needs (food, water, etc). 

Working with the world's poorest children for over 20 years

Children are the hardest hit by poverty. Of the 2.2 billion children in our world today almost half of them live in appalling conditions. But it is these children who have the potential to break the cycle of deprivation for future generations. They are the teachers, doctors, journalists engineers and politicians of the future.

ABC Children´s Aid has over 20 years' of experience of working with the world's poorest children, and now supports around 11.000 poor children with education, medical help, food and clothing. Almost 4000 of them receive full support and housing in ABC homes. Our aim is to change their future, by offering them a hand-up out of poverty. Rather than offering them a short-term hand-out, ABC seeks to make a long-term difference by offering free education that is of the highest possible standard. As the children get older, the education includes vocational and technical education, designed to train the children in ways which will lead them to self-sufficiency. The school programme includes giving free health-care and one nutritious meal each day to all of the children who attend. ABC children's aid also sets up and runs children's homes where necessary, to provide a stable and loving home for those children that have no family of their own to bring them up.

A Multi-national organisation

ABC Children's Aid was founded in 1988 in Iceland, as a charitable, non-profit organisation, where it now donates more money to children's projects oversees than any other aid organisation in Iceland apart from the Red Cross and Unicef. It has since become a multi-national organisation, and now raises money for the world's poorest children in the USA, the UK, and the Faroe Islands. ABC plans to register in other European countries in the near future.

ABC children's aid is set up as a non-profit making, charitable institution in every country where it operates,. Each support-raising country is financially independent, and submits its annual accounts to the relevant tax office in each country in which it is registered

ABC Children's Aid finds its motivation from Christian principles, especially from the commandment to love your neighbor as you love yourself and to carry each other's burdens. It seeks to work in close partnership with local people across the developing world, empowering them to change their own communities by helping the next generation to step up out of poverty and lack of education.

The Vision of ABC Children’s Aid is to give:

  • Street children a shelter and later a permanent home in an ABC village. 
  • Poor children opportunity to go to school. 
  • Sick children an access to medical care.
