Who is Humanium ?

Humanium is an international child sponsorship NGO dedicated to stopping violations of children’s rights throughout the world.

Humanium was founded in Geneva in 2008 with a single purpose: the well-being of children worldwide. The association strives for a concrete improvement in their living conditions and their basic rights.

Humanium’s objectives span four complementary approaches:

  • raising awareness of children’s rights to more than five million people each year worldwide
  • legal assistance for victims of children’s rights violations
  • supporting local partners with projects to help children
  • advocating internationally for the improvement and fulfillment of child rights, with a focus on environmental rights
