Thanks to your support, a child from a poor background is given the chance of a dignified and independent future through a sound education and vocational training.
With a sponsorship you accompany a child into life – an extraordinarily enriching experience for both sides. If you are interested in a personal exchange, you can write to and visit your sponsored child. Your help arrives directly.
The sponsorship covers the living and educational costs of a child. Further donations enable the expansion and maintenance of the facility as well as extraordinary purchases.
What your donations achieve

How you can help us:
With a general donation you support the operation of the children’s home and the school.
You donate for a specific project. You help with the purchase of additional school material and toys in the kindergarten.
You finance the costs of a further training course for teachers or a school trip.
Do your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews or godchildren have everything your heart desires?
By sponsoring a BHCH child, you enable them to experience a new world, get to know a foreign culture and perhaps even become friends across borders.
Instead of birthday or Christmas presents, you can symbolically give school and handicraft materials and books for BHCH. You will receive a certificate when you hand over your gift.
You are celebrating a round birthday, a silver wedding, the start of a new phase in your life and would like to pass on your joy.
Ask your guests to support BHCH with a contribution.
Flowers and wreaths wither quickly.
With a donation in memory of the deceased, however, life blossoms anew.
Would you like to support BHCH after your death with an inheritance or legacy?
You can include BHCH in your will.
I liked being part of something bigger and I think it is the only chance for these children to get a good education in their lives because one day they will be on their own. And when we fill their rucksack, we’ll give them a chance.”
