Transforming the Lives of Children in Care
Dedicated to the prevention and relief of poverty and sickness of children living in institutional care in
Bosnia and Herzegovina.
We are an international charity registered in three countries: Our Kids (UK), Våra Barn (Sweden) and Naša Djeca (Bosnia and Herzegovina). Through these organisations the care and concern of a worldwide community has been garnered to raise more than €430,000 over the last 6 years, enabling us to make a huge difference by providing good and loving social care to vulnerable children.
Through sustainable care projects, training and education, we hope to equip the current generation with the skills and tools that will make them self-reliant as well as encouraging them to become role models and educators of future generations.

How You Can Help
There are so many different ways you can help. You can donate directly, run your own fundraising event, sponsor a project or volunteer to work with us. Please get in touch, we are always happy to talk.
Current Recruitment: Right now we're recruiting inspiring people to teach in our unique educational program in Mostar. Three weeks teaching bright and enthusiastic students with freedom to design your own course.
The 100% Model
All operating costs are covered by private donors so 100% of public donations go directly to pay for services provided to the children.
Reliability and Trust
We publish our financial statements and we're a registered charitable organisation. We can prove where every penny goes.
We never give cash to institutions where the children live. Instead we employ our own staff and donate equipment and supplies.
