For more than 50 years, AMADE has been supporting humanitarian programmes that help children throughout the world.

Established by Princess Grace of Monaco in 1963, AMADE’s mission is to protect children’s lives and physical and moral integrity from drugs, violence, child prostitution or slavery of any kind.

“More than 50 years ago, my mother, who had been particularly moved by the tragedy experienced by the children of Vietnam, decided to take action to protect children. This impulse led to the founding of the Association Mondiale des Amis de l’Enfance (the World Association of Children’s Friends),” says Princess Caroline of Hanover, who has taken over her mother’s role as President of the NGO.

Since then, AMADE has undertaken many actions on the ground in developing countries. Its flagship programmes include efforts to reintegrate child soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo or to support Syrian refugee children through Time to Act in partnership with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

As part of its Dignity for Women programme, AMADE also supports a number of initiatives aimed at helping young female victims of violence, pregnant women, young mothers and their children. The organisation works closely with Noble Peace Prize winner Dr Mukwege, the “man who repairs women”.

AMADE also holds advisory status with UNICEF, UNESCO and the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), and participatory status with the Council of Europe.

Backed by a network of partners spread across four continents, AMADE helps more than 40,000 of the most vulnerable children every year.
