Swiss Association for help and protection for vulnerable and social distress children
Our primary mission is to help vulnerable children and adolescents in social distress around the world. We provide these children whose personal development is highly compromised (abandonment, physical and / or moral danger, abused and marginalized children…), protection and psychological support, respect for their fundamental rights, learning about personal development and adapted school program.
The abuse or mistreatment of a child consists of all forms of physical, emotional or sexual abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, or forms of exploitation, including commercial, resulting in actual or potential harm to child’s health, survival, development or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility, trust or power. It can intervene both in the child’s family universe and in his wider social circle.
