L’ESPERANCE-Kinderhilfe e. V. is a Christian organization founded in 1983 in the Federal Republic of Germany. L’ESPERANCE is French and means: “the hope”.
Our main goal is to build and maintain Christian children’s villages for orphans in different parts of the world. L’ESPERANCE regives the orphans the security of the family and the small village community and creates favorable conditions for them to develop personally and independently. This is done through an integrated holistic education. It takes place in the family group and in the community structure of the village, in a Christian school that belongs to the children’s village and is maintained by L’ESPERANCE, and in a practical training that runs parallel to the school lessons in all branches of work that belong to the village. The goal is to develop “heart, head and hand” of the young people equally.
