Transforming the Lives of Children and Young People
Our Kids Foundation is a UK registered charity that designs, initiates and funds projects to improve the lives and prospects of children and young adults in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Often, but not exclusively, the beneficiaries of our projects are children living in institutional care and those with disabilities.
A fire broke out at the Egipatsko Selo orphanage on 25 January 2016. No-one was hurt but two dormitories were damaged and the children have been moved to temporary accommodation. The orphanage already struggles to obtain funding for basic needs. Our Kids Foundation has launched an appeal to raise the £5000 required to restore the children's homes. Please donate as much or as little as you can. Thank you!

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.
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.
